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.

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

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.

A chair designed in 3D Studio Max, built off a sketch which was loosely based on some chairs in a Barnes & Noble. Rendered with lighting

Here, for your consideration. All kinds of Ultima Online-related thinga-ma-jigs. Screenshots, drawings, animated gifs. Whatever your heart can dream of listed right here in no particular order or logic.

An award-winning poem.... from a computer game. Also, about a computer game. Can you say nerd? I can. I smell it too!

Unfortunately in my efforts to rebuild my site, my memory is foggy on this short story, but I believe it came out of a Meetup "Just Write" session challenge. The character is extremely loosely based on a real cab driver, although I'm sure he wasn't named Nugget, and takes a short, humorous stab at explaining his motives and personality.

A friend challenged anyone to turn up a Singularity story (machines achieve sentience) that relied on no cliches. I totally misunderstood what he was talking about, but wrote this story anyway. It's about a PI investigating a crime in the not-too-distant future in my hometown, Chicago.

A travel essay/article; and the last thing I ever wrote at Eastern IL University. The crux of the essay is my trip to England and the slow transformation of feeling like an awkward outsider to being one of a close-knit team of friends. It's a little corny, skimming it now over 10 years later to write this summary.

For the holiday season in 2013, Symmetri decided they wanted something a little different than a holiday card. They challenged me to create a quick web game. The result was a simple shooting game in which you try to knock ornaments off a reindeer's antlers.

Some amusing graphics and diagrams from, ohh, before you were born.

Representing the last module I wrote while I worked for Symmetri Marketing, this module attempts to provide a site-wide solution to a problem that arose after Google Analytics switched to Universal Analytics: How to capture campaign parameters and save it with webform submissions.

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.
