About me

Hi there!
My name is Michal Duda. Software Developer located in Prague, Czech Republic.

Interests

Software Engineering
A broad area that goes along with me during the majority of my life. Many things are hidden beyond. Man can handle only a few of them during a career.
Photography
Static pictures are wonderful but need to be well-balanced. I like the high contrast black and white, or gray-scaled, or monochromatic pictures.
Notaphily
Do you like banknotes? No? So send me them! Just kidding. Notaphily is the study and collection of paper currency and banknotes. And that's what I'm interested in.

Favorite ...

Animal
Definitely, a penguin, because they are lovely well-dressed sweethearts. More than 7 years, I am an adoptive parent of Humboldt's penguins in the Prague Zoo @ the Czech Republic.
Actor
Whoever will not stay alive till the end of a movie.
Operating System
Whatever having a Unix-like kernel inside.
Text Editor
The GNU Emacs, of course.

Favourite Quotation

Theory is when you know all and nothing works.
Practice is when all works and nobody knows why.
In this case we have put together theory and practice: nothing works… and nobody knows why!

Albert Einstein

Favourite Quotation

No beast so fierce but knows some touch of pity.
But I know none, and therefore am no beast.

William Shakespeare, Richard III

ck550-macos

CoolerMaster has never provided any MacOS SW or SDK for its CK550 keyboards. The CK550-macos project tries to fix this situation and provides a couple of the MacOS applications for controlling the majority of available keyboard LED effect. Applications support only CK550 US-Layout keyboards. Its functionality is based on the USB traffic analysis and is written in Swift.

Aria RPM

Aria was one of the best download managers ever developed for Linux. It was written by Tatsuhiro Tsujikawa. Although development has stopped in December 2002 by releasing the final version, we were still maintaining RPM packages for Fedora Core and Mandrake Linux distribution.

This project is no longer maintained. Use the Aria2 instead.
