Redlow.net

Welcome to redlow.net, an ancient place of power birthed from the remains of an abandoned roman internet super highway. A site so antique, it's everything and nothing at once. Once in a blue moon I might update a thing.

Some old banners and logos from previous versions of redlow.net

A bench free-handed in 3D Studio Max. A simple granite texture has been applied with, I believe, a bump map. Rendered with one light.

From 2011 to July 2015, I worked at Symmetri Marketing in Chicago as a developer. I had a hand in, or built myself, over 20 websites, all in drupal - with a handful of others in .NET platforms. In the majority of these sites I was the front-end developer, the back end developer, and in all cases, the CMS architect.

A model designed in 3D Studio Max; built from a profile view on graph paper. No textures; just rendered with lighting.

Like a putz, I agreed to build this language translator for some languages spoken in this ancient game, Ultima Online.  I maintain the code, but not the appearance.

Another award-winning poem.. submitted in a computer game. Although this one has nothing to do with the game at all.

Continuing my work building more robust modules, this module also includes hooks and an admin screen. Unlike the EU Cookie Notice, this was created to meet a very specific need which did not exist in the community that I could see.

A UO player whose character was "Rok Hagor" interviewed me one evening. It was.. uh, real?

I have OCD. All the OCD.  There's only so many magic sleeves in the world (heaven forbid you play a magic deck without them) and only so long before I get tired of a deck and take it apart.  If it was especially tasty, I'll write it down first.

Arguably, although probably not true, this is my best piece of fiction. Having nothing to do with the movie with a similar name, it is instead about two lab researchers at a university investigating the existence (or lack of) god. It's science fiction as well, in that holograms run rampant in this world, and more often than not, serve as a metaphor for God, God's love, or just love itself. If you like artsy, but still entertaining short stories, you'll enjoy it.

ABT, or "As Britannia Turns", was a soap opera set in Ultima Online (specifically, Great Lakes). Featuring fictional characters based on real life players' own fictional characters, it's only surpassed in meta-y-ness by a novella in the personal section called 'The Undiscovered Facet'. There's about 36 episodes, written between 2000 and, perhaps, 2004-ish.

Quite some time ago, I interviewed God. It was an enlightening experience. We then had two follow-up interviews, all of which are included here.
