TMP (Michel Roserens) was a member of the cpc team UNiX


TMP is the younger brother of Asterix. He started programming at the age of twelve. He was the programming genius of the three Swiss Warlock, Asterix and TMP. Assembler did not have any secrets to him at the age of thirteen and he would have been the youngest demomaker on the scene at the time.

We will never forget the day when at the Euromeeting 1 meeting he asked JLCS: "He JL, do you fancy programming a 'Gump Scroll' with me ? We will never forget JL's expression on his face asking: "Excuse me, what's a 'Gump Scroll' ?". TMP at his age hadn't realized that 'Gump Scroll' (Gump = To jump in Swiss German) wasn't known as a verb outside Switzerland...

Despite this he was the strongest of the Swiss crew, when it came to coding. He had the fastest algorithms and knew all the tricks first. Nobody was surprised to see him graduate as a Computer Engineer from the Swiss Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL).

Today he is working in a Swiss bank, is married to his long time girlfriend and father to a cute little daughter.
