TYPO free


fighting for TYPO free code

MindState - Michiel Roos



My name is Michiel Roos. I currently work for MaxServ in Holland. I like tech stuff like Linux, TYPO3, Gumstix and Roombas but I also like to dig in the dirt and try to grow veggies and other things. Some of you may know me as author of nc_staticfilecache and maintainder of the DAM project.

But why?

Well . . . I like code without typo's. It just runs better ;-)

In the previous article you can read how to install KCachegrind on OSX. If you are on Ubuntu or any other flavour of Linux, chances are that more »

Installing KCachegrind on OSX

Sat, 1 Aug 2009

This article is only relevant for users of OSX.  Coming from a Gentoo world to OSX, now and then I want to install some software that is not available pre-built for OSX. I like to use more recent Apache 2 for local testing and I also like to use Gimp and InkScape, so I use MacPorts to fetch and compile all the Open. . .more »

Create a 'drop shadow' folder action

Tue, 13 Jan 2009

Back in the day I worked for an advertising company and had a desk in the studio where all the shiny Macs lived. They had all these cool Adobe programs that could do amazing things for you when hooked to 'folder actions'.more »

Skype chat in Adium

Mon, 12 Jan 2009

When I started using more than one messenging program because client X used it, my screen got more and more cluttered with tiny windows. When I found Adium, I was able to reduce those many windows into one. Until Skype came . . .more »
