space - jump
v - call for PB to give me some cold coke and wipe my bum.

My computer blew up the other week, so I donīt have quake :) but it wasnīt big... standard installation, qdqstats 1.7 and the essential RDE-maps :)

Your computer (processor/videocard etc.)?
p4 I think, 1,6 Ghz. 256 mb RAM.

Quake settings (resolution, version etc.)?

First contact to speedrunning (when, how etc.)?
I bought a copy of PC-Gamer, back in 1997 (?), and on the CD, they had put qdq_1949. Since I had played quake for some months by then (only dm), I got very interested in what this thing was. After 19 minutes and 49 seconds, Yonatan was my GOD =)

First speedrunning demo?
I was soo proud of it back then!

Favorite trick in a demo?
An unexpected one. Since I didnīt know of g.jumps when watching qdq, I almost shit my pants when Yonatan did one in e1m3 :) Almost got the same reaction in h1m3_048 when Ilkka took the air-vent to the other side...

Favorite QdQ release?
Without a doubt.
