comment When did the concept of Striker, Controller, Leader and Defender enter into the gaming lexicon?
okay - clearly the terminology has changed more than I thought - AOE I assume means "area of effects" but what does "CC" mean in this context? and what does "DPS" stand for?

comment What technologies are useful to modern-day gamers and DMs?
well since I work in tech (at my own startups & as a tech blogger & consultant) I have a lot of technology - iPhone, MacBook - no iPad yet but expect to have one or two soon) but I am looking at getting a new printer soonish (and a scanner) - I've usually gotten Laser printers in the past to minimize ink costs & maximize time between replacing inks.

thanks I've seen many of those posts but the full list is great - however these are mostly focused on software (and mostly PC though some are cross platform). I'm very curious about what hardware (if any) people are using - another answer talks about using a cheap picoprojector for digital maps which is a cool idea. Are there printers people prefer for high quality/reasonable cost for printing out maps & other PDF resources? Do people use iPhones or iPads on the game table?

comment How to get back into gaming?
I'm in the same situation as the person who asked this question - I'm in my late 30's, going to a gaming group at a local college feels a bit odd and I haven't (yet) had luck finding a group to play with via Meetup or a local game store - do you have any other suggestions? I'd probably like to find a group to play 4th ed with here in SF but am flexible - though I've only tried 3rd ed (or 3.5 not sure) once before and didn't really like it). I didn't play much in college (early 90's) then got into MtG and some live action games (mostly World of Darkness) in the mid-90's and early 2000's b
