RTCX.NET is the web home of yours truly, RT Cunningham. While it’s not as old as Untwisted Vortex, where I began my online writing career in May of 2006, I consider it personally more important as the basis for all future endeavors.
On this specific website, the root of all the websites that already exist or will exist as subdomains of it, is where I’ll write about my projects and websites as I build them and make them public. I’m in no hurry, as you can plainly see.
When I “purchased” the domain name of rtcx.net on February 28, 2011, I intended to use it merely as the base for multiple subdomains. The root domain itself was only intended as a placeholder with links to other places on the web where I’ve planted my name in one way or another.
While I didn’t consider the domain name itself to be important because I just wanted it to be short, the combination of letters make it a kind of vanity domain name. The first three letters are my initials.
On May 2, 2012, I decided to use this specific domain name as a kind of long-term tutorial about building an authority website, almost from scratch.
Programming in any Language
I don’t really enjoy working on large projects and that’s why they take me so long to complete. I like short and concise projects that perform specific functions. It doesn’t matter which programming language I happen to be working with at the time.
I don’t like OOP or any of the other weird acronyms. I don’t think you have to load the entire Earth into an object just so you can select Los Angeles, California or New York, New York as a geographical location from that object. In other words, I don’t like overkill in the off-chance that I might need it in 20 years.
