About me

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

Interests

Software Engineering
Broad area which goes along with me during the majority of my life. Many things are hidden beyond. Man can handle only few of them during a career.
Photography
Static pictures are wonderful, but needs 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.

Favourite ...

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 @ 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
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

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 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This project is no longer maintained.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.
