I'm a long-time RPGer, mostly D&D and it's varities.
I started gaming when I was 12, in 1988. I've played oD&D, AD&D, AD&D2E, D&D 3E, 3.5, a few varities of the d20 system (Everquest D20 comes to mind), and now play Pathfinder with D&D back system support
I'm also the guy that put the only mirror of the old Wizards of the Coast Boards I'm aware "Secrets of the Archmages" at http://secretsofthearchmages.net/
(The goal of the website is to get all those threads sorted not by topic, but by content type)
I'm educated as a programmer. I actually wrote the program that downloaded the above mentioned board.
