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.

Sometimes I think I'm an architect. In a video game. Throw a little more OCD on the fire.  I take screenshots of houses I've designed in UO.

Once, around 2009-2010, I ran a private Ultima Online server. Although it's been offline for several years, I keep the "patch" file notes here for my own reference and for anyone else with an interest in running it or their own.

This Drupal 7 module represented several firsts for me: Making an ajax call, developing an admin configuration page for a module, defining a block via a module, and passing variables to JS from a drupal module.

A sort of convoluted screenplay about an immigrant, God and Satan's arguments over who people blame for what, and a 23-year-old's half baked statement about terrorism. It won some made-up classroom awards tho, so I'm sure it could be an oscar-winning movie someday!

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.

The snarky toast I gave at my brother's wedding.

Panor is a free color-matching game released on the google play app market. 

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

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.

A free-form tree built in 3D Studio Max. One of the last models I built, this one has some texture work along with 2D planes with leaves to create the illusion of full foliage.

An award-winning essay about the Blue Hotel and its undertones of Tolstoy vs. Darwinism and the East vs. the West. If you haven't read Stephen Crane this probably won't be understandable.

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.
