  • Welcome to the DeadUseful Project

  • Well, it's finally here.

    It’s been a long time coming but we’ve finally transitioned to The DeadUseful Project.

    The DeadUseful Project is an amalgamation of some useful tools I created for myself, but then developed them for others over a few years.

    This new project will be outlet for me to develop web tools, release code and blog about it. I call it “The DeadUseful Project”.

    There’s already some projects you may be familiar with:
