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.

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.

A simple, still-more-to-do life counter for Magic: the Gathering.

A poem about a former love interest, who shall remain safely anonymous. Although it sounds abstract, each line has specific meaning.

This is an article for a small, community magazine in Champaign, IL. The magazine wanted the focus to be on the school's academics, but the contact at the college didn't want to talk about that, interestingly. In fact, I had some trouble landing an interview with the college's president, who didn't want the exposure. It's not all clear-cut, sometimes.

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

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.

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).

The longest piece I've written that I've felt compelled to share; the Undiscovered Facet is a fictional world set inside another fictional world (the computer game, Ultima Online). Featuring fictionalized versions of other real players' fictional characters, this novella is so meta, you'll think google bots wrote it.

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

I have a fascination with poorly-drawn cats.

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.
