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.

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.

Simple lighting, no texture render from 3D Studio Max. This is an air gun from a video game friends and I developed.

For immediate release:
THEY Corp. reports a major merger between Tuesday and neighboring day, Wednesday.

Once, I wrote a silly letter to Nabisco after some Oreos I bought went stale. This is the letter and their lame reply. Suspiciously, Oreos started being sold in resealable packaging only a few months afterwards.

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 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.

"The Elements of Roleplay" is an RP guide written for Ultima Online, which garnered a lot of attention and re-posting. Although it's written specifically for UO, the suggestions and advice here could certainly be applied to any pen&paper game or computer game with player-to-player roleplaying elements (the few that still exist).

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.

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.

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

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

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.
