What is Nifty-Stuff? The name of this site reflects the content… it is a repository of some of the stuff I (Rob Ludlow) consider nifty. The site includes articles, images, and guides to a plethora of subject matter that I want to share with friends, family, and the internet community.

To navigate, please select one of the menu items to the right. Take a look through all the articles or choose from one of the recent topics. You can also select a specific category like Printers, LEDs, or Chickens.  You can also see the most recent articles here.

Check out my portfolio of websites, especially www.BackYardChickens.com, which sees about 2 million visitors per month.
