I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

comment Software to keep track of mapnotes
Also, my personal thoughts - please don't just propose every image manipulation tool known to man, he wants an easy map annotation solution. Paint.NET, GIMP, Office, etc. are obvious and poor solutions.

comment Item Creation Without Experience Points
Pathfinder removed the XP costs from 3.5 crafting with no resulting downside or mass-production problems. Specific high level spell effects (permanency, restoration, resurrection) got some additional gp cost but that's it. Works fine.
