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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

A PDF format version of descriptions of various colleges at Eastern Illinois University. This was written during a 6 month internship at EIU, where I worked in the University's publications department. These descriptions appeared in the primary marketing booklet for their "i am eiu." campaign that was rolling out in 2004 and, as of 2016, is still in use today.

Representing the last module I wrote while I worked for Symmetri Marketing, this module attempts to provide a site-wide solution to a problem that arose after Google Analytics switched to Universal Analytics: How to capture campaign parameters and save it with webform submissions.

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

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.
