Melvin C. McDowell

I am a Christian and a semi-retired attorney, former IRS revenue officer, and former naval intelligence officer. I am also a Son of the American Revolution and a Gideon.

I am interested in exploring decentralization and privacy/encryption technologies. This website is hosted via a decentralized peer to peer technology known as the InterPlanetary File System (ipfs) that allows me to host the site on my own PC via the Brave browser and the IPFS Companion extension.

Furthermore, I have purchased a permanent domain name, melvinmcdowell.blockchain, from Unstoppable Domains that is linked to a version of this website (perhaps not the most recent version). If you use an ipfs capable browser such as Brave or Opera or another browser on which you have installed the IPFS Companion extension, you should be able to access an iteration of this website by typing melvinmcdowell.blockchain in the address box.

Also I currently have an account on a Mastodon instance on the Fediverse, where you can follow me at: @[email protected]. You can message me via XMPP at [email protected] (be sure to use OMEMO encryption). My PGP public key fingerprint is:

... if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Rom 10:9 ESV
