First contact to speedrunning (when, how etc.)?
back in the second half of 1997 when i was still in middle-school, i had already read in a chinese magzine that there was a movie of running through quake in 19:49, but it was not until i entered university in sep 1998 and got internet connection in our dormitory in apr 1999 that i could finally download it and qdqr, qdqlite, qd100q...(at that time i was playing quake2 on an amd486-133 oc 150 and had around 10 fps in 320*240, how painful it was) by then i didn't know the existence of sda yet, but sometime around nov 2000 i visited the qdq site again and found qdqwav, which truly dragged me to speedrunning, so i came to visit sda and started nonsensing a lot on the messageboard...

Do you like Doom/Quake2/Q3A?
doom: yes, still a great classic.
quake2: sure, the most influential game ever to me.
q3a: pretty boring, the weapons and combat system sux.
counterstrike: not too bad. i hate it that i can't run fast, but i enjoy camping incautious dumbasses. ;-P

What do you think of Quake now?
still the best game for speedrunning, but when it comes to multiplayer q2 is still my favorite. ;-P

Quake Purity Test score? link
many questions seem too outdated so i don't want to answer them again.
