There is a slow way to do this. Open public games. Note the time of the most recent move. Type in the name of the player, click Search, and note the time of the last move when it is NOT the players turn (no little square). For example, I know that, as I write this, you are not on line.
I do agree that this is needed, and most vBulletin sites have it, so a module is probably availsble. I just don't know if Russ and Chris can get it cheaply.
How about a game?
