Okay! My turn  :o

Full name is Ronald Leon Steelman, Jr. and I am 19 years old. I am 6'2", 140 lbs, dark hair, and color-changing eyes (a defect due to my being color blind, a male only disease!).

I got interested in Web when I was 12.  First thing I taught myself was HTML.  From there I got into JavaScript, (X)HTML, CSS, PHP/MySQL, Java, Visual Basic, and XML.

I am not married, currently I am single, and I am far from having kids, though I wouldn't mind having a boy at some point.  When I am not programming or doing web design, and sometimes when I am, I am listening to my music.  I love my music! I listen to punk rock only!  Good Charlotte is the best band of all time, none beats them in my book, but some others include, but is not limited to:  Simple Plan, The Vincent Black Shadow, Evanescence, Alkaline Trio, Hinder, and many many more!  As you may have guessed from my music, that is pretty much my style. Black is my favorite color, AND NO I AM NO DAMN EMO KID!

When I am not on the computer, my iPOD and I are tearing up the cement on my Element board (one of my pride and joys).  If I don't feel like keeping balance then I throw on the blades. I am pretty fair at both of them, and I enjoy them o-so much!

If I am not doing any of that, I am deeply involved in my Playstation 2 or some computer game!  Final Fantasy is my biggest game, followed closely by Counter Strike (I hated Final Fantasy 10, 10-2, and 9 BTW. WTF was SquareSoft thinking?!?!).

I am a Democrate with strong moderate views.  Some things I am liberal, and others I am conservative.  Don't start debating politics with me, because it is a passion and nothing can move me from my views (WOOO WHOO! Democrates took control of the House and the Senate today! And for the first time, a woman stands third in line from being President!).

Lets see, I don't think I covered television/movies yet. See, I own a video store and so I am a big critic on movies. Television includes: Grey's Anatomy (mainly for her anatomy!), E.R., Angel, Law and Order, Charmed, Fooly Cooly, AquaTeenHungerForce, Family Guy, and a few others.  Movies include: Matrix (all), Hackers, American Pie 1-3, She's The Man, Mission Impossible 1 - 3, Minority Report, FERRIS BULLERS DAY OFF (Buller...Buller....Buller...Buller), The Breakfast Club (don't mess with the bull or you will get the horns), and a lot more.

Favorite foods?  Almost anything. I like chocolate, but I am allergic to it  :'( . Watermellon, strawberries, Steak, Roast, Stew, Shrimp, Crab, Snake, Gator, Caviar, Pork Chop, BACON, and lots of others.

Well, that seems to be all you need to know about me :)  If you want to know more, Google me. I actually show up as a Google result!  ;D

Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

okay for those of you who happen to be on the other side of this sarchasm:

the red dots spell out "CV is stupid 2.0"

and yes, ron was in fact able to read them.

although I will admit that in a recent poll, it turns out that 92 out of 100 people could not read it either. 67 of the 92 claimed they did not recognize the fact that they were letters in the first place.  20 of them claimed they recognized some letters but could not make out what it said, perhaps because they just can't read, or can't spell properly, or some other reason altogether; overall it is somewhat ironic that these people are in fact also stupid 2.0.  The remaining 5 of the 92 were in fact color blind, or at least they claimed to be.  Further studies may need to be conducted in order to find out whether they were telling the truth or lying because color-blind is the new "in" thing to be. 

Of the 8 people who were in fact able to make out what it said: At least 5 of them cannot be trusted as validly being able to read it, as they failed to reveal their knowledge on the subject until after i went and spoiled it in the irc chatroom.  Of the other 3, 2 can be 100% confirmed, one of them being myself, of course, as I wrote the damn thing.  As far as the 3rd person goes, there is reason to believe that I may in fact have multiple personality disorder, and so I may have answered twice.  Further investigation is in order on that count, as well.

Once the fact that there was a message there was pointed out, I was quickly able to discern the individual letters. Now that I know what I'm looking for, do you have another one? I'd be interested to see if I could decipher one when I know what I'm after.
You can't win, you can't lose, you can't break even... you can't even get out of the game.

that isn't unhealthy. I get regular checkups, and I am at a perfectly normal weight.  It is normal to be that weight when your as tall as me.

My sister is about 5'6 or so, 16 years old, and she weights 107.  When she was 15 she weighed 99.  Small weight runs in our family.

dude... I'm 6'3" and 205 lbs... and I'm not exactly overweight.  I could lose maybe 10 lbs, but ... I just don't get it.  If I lost 65 lbs, I'd be emaciated.

Yep, I"m about the same as you ober, 6'3, range from between 200-210, usually around the middle.  I remember in High School I was only about 175, which was really skinny.  140 is anorexic.

Yeah, I was 180 in high school and that was only the lighter side. 

And technically Ron, you're underweight: http://www.weightwat...lthyweight.aspx

i'm 5'8" (i know, short) and 170 lbs, and something like 12% body fat.  there is no way you can possibly be at a healthy bodyfat % at 140lbs and 6'2".  and where the BMI tables are concerned (as ober linked you), it's far more difficult to argue the underweight region as healthy than the overweight region.
