Finally, is there a backstory to how you got your name ARP? (I can call you ARP, right?) Oh, and finally, I just wanted to point out another thing: Am I the only one who thinks about the subject (beside the first post in a thread)?

'TestTubeGames' came about as I tried to think of a name that was a)easy to spell, b)short-ish, c)was clearly science-y, and d)was clearly game-y. And it had to roll off the tongue. So it was basically me, a blank sheet of paper, and a lot of brainstorming.
And then there was the fact that test tubes make you think about experiments... and this is all one big experiment for me, after all. So it all fit.
As for BARP, yeah, I misread the 'by' as being part of your name. It was so fun to type, and even more fun to pronounce. But 'random' is perhaps a classier nickname.
