What is DayDull?

Gaming News, product reviews, tips & tutorials, and maybe even a little life philosophy. DayDull is a source for miscellaneous and very specific niche information on any tech, art, entertainment, and life subjects that interest the author.

  • The author. Artist, designer, and gamer who uses daydull.com as a way to share otherwise hard-to-find information.
  • Reviews. Detailed product reviews focused on information that is not available elsewhere.
  • Rants. Business, current events and maybe even some politics (probably not) and other random subjects that don’t merit their own category.
  • Tips & Tutorials. While working on various projects, I often come across subjects or problems with no answers elsewhere on the internet. Hopefully they will now be found here.
  • Gaming: bug fixes, strategies, news, and other unique content related to video games.

DayDull was started in earnest in 2009. In the middle of that year the website went live and articles began to be written. In early 2010 the graphical elements of the website were updated. In 2017 the website was updated with a visual facelift and to be more mobile friendly.

The Purpose of this Website

The primary purpose of DayDull is to share hard-to-find information through articles, guides, and tutorials. Ever googled something with no luck? When that happens to me, and I’m able to figure out a solution or conclusion through my own testing or research, I share the information here where it can help others.

DayDull.com? What’s With That Domain Name?

“DayDull” is loosely based on the word “daedal,” an adjective associated with artwork and craftsmanship through the greek mythos of Daedelus. Daedelus was the father of Icarus, that impetuous kid who flew too close to the sun with wax wings that melted. As an artist, designer, and someone who likes to craft things in general, I liked the meaning of “daedal,” but as a domain name it’s not very easy to remember and was already owned.  With a little variation, “DayDull” was the result, and also has a bit of double meaning: night is when most people are free to have fun and pursue their interests and hobbies. Meanwhile the day is often full of work and other mundane (dull?) activities.
