My name[edit]

I'd like to provide a little bit of disambiguation about my own name.  ;) As indicated by my account name my last name is Rodovsky, and I'm working on writing a Wikipedia article about Czech alchemist Bavor Rodovský, however I'd like to reassure readers that I'm perhaps more objective about Bavor Rodovský as a subject than at first appears, because I myself was actually adopted by a woman who married a Rodovsky, and I never knew my would-have-been adoptive father because he died five years before I was born. So I have less of a connection to the Rodovsky name and history than the rest of my family does, and I'll be very careful to be objective in my writing.

Web Presence[edit]

I'm one of the minority of people who have a service cat, as opposed to a service dog, so my service cat has his own blog:

My Elfwood page:

I'm still learning to use the Wikipedia Babel box.

I'm a native speaker of English, Dutch is my second major language but I don't write it well, I studied French, poorly, in high school, and I've learned some Russian through immersion in Moscow but am always looking to learn more. I'm currently learning conversational Arabic with the help of a neighbor friend.
