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.

There are also a lot of nifty new features like an empty gif configuration. We can use this to serve an empty gif right from memory without having to. . .more »
