Anything you want to add here (about yourself)?
Your nickname (story behind it)?

Your computer (processor/videocard etc.)?
| 1800+XP/geforce4 MX 440 (i know it can't do the new shit but quake doesn't need any
bloody pixel shaders now does it :P
2nd PC is P3 550 with Geforce 2 MX 400, they are both hooked up so the next time your
in NZ come and say hi and we can coop :)
Quake settings (resolution, version etc.)?
| don't know don't really care, i like the look of GL so i guess that doesn't make me "pure"
First contact to speedrunning (when, how etc.)?
| Years ago one of my friends got a PC gamer mag with QdQ_1949 and they showed me but at that stage I had only played Quake dm and sucked at that and didn't know the levels or how cool it was. I was told how much of the levels were cut out. Years later after playing quake sp, i got a PC Zone mag (much better) which had Qd100Q and SdS. Need I say I knew what was going on and was impressed. I then found SDS and just watched demos but then i saw a demo from will which really sucked and I thought hell even I can beat this, I did, and that was where it all began.
Update from that, i made some demos, started uni, went quiet, had a comeback, went quiet, 2
quiet .. time for another comeback ;)
First speedrunning demo?
| r2m4_1237 An exciting demo to watch :)
Favorite speedrunning demo(s) from yourself
(the one(s) that you're most proud of)?
| my only and brief ID record the NH all of id which got owned but my personal time is now under 2 hours at least. Once I make more demos I'll prolly get a clear favourite for here
Favorite speedrunning demo(s) from others?
| This question is loaded, if you answer it you get yourself in shit :) Go look at the Nolans nominees page, or maybe the "optimised" demo list 2 fill this gap
Favorite player (overall/runs/100%/marathon/coop)?
| yet another loaded question. but if you are still keeping the community active u make me proud :)
Favorite trick in a demo?
| Hmm maybe that quad GJ from qdqwav, i never thought that shit could b done so smooth :)
Favorite QdQ release?
Favorite original Quake map?
Favorite custom map?
Most annoying monster/map?
| Scrags, or any monster in r1m1, map thats easy, the DOE dragon after 1300 odd other kills in Nightmare. that is why to this day there are 2 holes in the DOE tables.
Do you like Doom/Quake2/Q3A?
| good/good/hmm not really, as for Doom and Quake2 every now and then i'll play em, but i can only do single player, and q3 "single player" is just dum, and i hate those stupid bots and the STUPID things they say in those accents ..
What do you think of Quake now?
| Its lasted this long, it can do another 5 years easy
Quake Purity Test score?
| was 70 something now 80 something but those questions are fucked up, and if u live in NZ how are u suppposed 2 meet those weird ppl?
Anything else you want to add here?
