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.

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.

This is a very, very short screenplay that came from a playwriting class at EIU. It stars two old Ultima Online friends and a fictional talking rat (well, real enough in this story).

This simple, no-frills version of Minesweeper is an android application built, somewhat clumsily, with HTML and JS using HTML tables.

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

A very simple randomization-driven app to waste your time.  It generates a random name and statistics of intergalatic locations, for your favorite science fiction projects.

A simple drupal 7 module requiring Commerce and Commerce Order. It demonstrates an early basic understanding of hooks (more complicated ones followed) along with the ability and desire to make simple, elegant solutions to some of drupal's more esoteric problems. In this case, the Commerce module's order form does not make the "company/organization" field required and does not give the option to do so.

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

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

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.

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.

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.
