Hi there! My name is Rodney Lewis.
Thank you for visiting my personal homepage!
I like saying that!
- I am passionate about creating a powerfully useful index of the Internet. I am going in a different direction than the leading search engines, with human-reviewed links, a consistent keyword taxonomy, fewer links but to more relevant results, a publicly available record for each webpage indexed and several other innovations that the big boys will soon be imitating. Stay tuned!
- I had such a tough time finding a good PC gaming website that would direct me to awesome games, without constantly trying to sell me something or get me to buy their product, that I had to make my own. MePlayGameNow.com features dozens of links to online arcades, PC download libraries, PC gaming periodicals and system emulators and game engines that run on the PC, but that’s not the half of it. The heart of MePlayGameNow.com is our searchable database of games for Apple, Windows and Linux, each record including a thorough description of the game, tags to related games, keyboard commands and shortcuts, walkthroughs, articles about the game in the media, and videos. I hope to eventually publish original PC games both Web-based and for download.
- Here is where I showcase and offer all my talents. Eventually I will add more highly skilled people to my team to provide a wide range of creative and technical services to individuals as well as businesses large and small. RJLsOnline.com is also an online store with no products for sale as of yet, but I am looking for products to carry. My store's focus is on goods and services that people and businesses buy whether the economy is good or bad. I try to refrain from products that I believe would be frivilous in times of economic crisis. This leaves a lot of items that would still qualify under that condition. For instance, people still buy entertainment products even when money is tight, as well as, naturally, food and other necessities.
- Money can’t buy happiness, but it is an unfortunate necessity of life. For now, we live in a world where having more money means having more options, and having the option to do A versus B seems to be the stuff of which freedom is made. People can use freedom to make truly positive choices in their lifestyles that bring them genuine happiness, or they can use that freedom to destroy themselves. While fingers are crossed that visitors will use my information to make good choices, RealMoneyPortal.com is about empowering them to do either in the first place. I feature several online and offline “new economy” ways of making money in our time. I list microtasking applications, P2P borrowing programs, credible and personally-vetted affiliate programs, and sites that facilitate offline task-related work like shopping and other domestic tasks.
I would love to help you with your website. I can build a website from the ground up or help you fix your existing website. We can work with Django or whatever systems you already have in place. I carefully craft the database at the backend for your data-driven needs, I dot every ‘i’ and cross every ‘t’ at the frontend, and I pay equally close attention to detail to everything in between. I carefully walk the tightrope between perfection and completion. Being a member of your team as quarter-, half-, or full-time employment or work as an independent contractor (preferably telecommuting most of the time) would allow me bring my abilities to bear to find solutions to your web presence needs while refining and sharpening my own skills. Go ahead and contact me through one of the social networking icons above.
To demonstrate that affixing labels to people in an attempt at easy categorization and compartmentalization is a futile endeavor, I present this list of every name, adjective, or noun that to the best of my recollection anyone has ever called me, including those I have called myself. Worthy of note should be how many of the following labels have a corresponding contradictory label. I am easily ten times more than the sum of all labels ever used to describe me. So here I list everything from my earliest memories until now. Everyone gets called, or has been called, many of these labels. From epithets every little brother in America gets called by their big brother to the quasi-innocent banter of schoolyard frenemies to complements and criticism by friends and acquaintances of today. I’m not going to tell you which ones are true and which aren’t as much of that changes over time and is subject to debate anyway. Some are a badge of honor, some make me laugh out loud, some make me nostalgic, while others are/were very hurtful, and still others make me cringe.
On advice of counsel, I am not to expound on these labels any further, in public or in private.
