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.

I have OCD. All the OCD.  There's only so many magic sleeves in the world (heaven forbid you play a magic deck without them) and only so long before I get tired of a deck and take it apart.  If it was especially tasty, I'll write it down first.

Sometimes I can be a little OCD.  I created a database of legendary creatures I own from Magic: the Gathering.  If you're me, I'm sure you'll find it useful.  If you're not me.. I mean.. go ahead and look at anyway?

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.

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 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!

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.

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.

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

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

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.
