About :: Me

Maik Broemme

I'm [not] a real geek, however I have a passion for technology, open source and Linux. I like to spent time on existing software, extend them with small patches and improve overall technology experience.

This site is mostly a link collection of my projects and patches I've created for several open source programs.

  • mpq-tools (Reference implementation of libmpq for demonstration)
