Eucalyptus Available Again

Indie Relief: Help Haiti, get great software.

ir_250.png We're very pleased to announce that Things Made Out Of Other Things is supporting Indie Relief, by donating all our proceeds from sales of Eucalyptus today (January 20th) to Oxfam, in support of their ongoing relief efforts in Haiti.

It's a great idea, and it's really heartwarming to see the massive number of companies and individuals taking part. Alongside Eucalyptus, almost 150 other Mac…
