I'm a mathematician working in algebra. I've been using TeX since 1987, but couldn't write my Ph.D. thesis with it. Sob!

I teach LaTeX at my university, besides the mathematics courses. I'm the author of some LaTeX packages and even of one Plain TeX package. At my site it's possible to download my book on LaTeX programming (in Italian, sorry).

Here's my motto for TeX.SX:

Pronto prontissimo son come il fulmine: sono il factotum della città. (From "Il barbiere di Siviglia", music by Gioachino Rossini, libretto by Cesare Sterbini.)

comment ! LaTeX Error: Not in outer par mode
As Jagath AR says, there is no need to put \includegraphics in a figure environment. TeX sees \includegraphics[...]{...} just like a big letter.

comment Why isn't LaTeX centering with the geometry package in use
Note that you don't need to specify margin=.25in: just the text dimensions and centering suffice to set the parameters.
