      var MemcachedStore = require('connect-memcached')(express);

      var app = express();

      app.use(express.favicon());

      // request logging
      app.use(express.logger());

      // required to parse the session cookie
      app.use(express.cookieParser());

      // Populates:
      // - req.session
      // - req.sessionStore
      // - req.sessionID (or req.session.id)

      app.use(express.session({
        secret: 'CatOnTheKeyboard',
        store: new MemcachedStore({
