Napster username: JanneKalliomaki
Homepage - working on it.. the url will probably be

Your music taste?
A tough question. Check this link to see some info: WinAmp Playlist
I can listen to almost anything from death metal to techno, but mostly I listen to hard rock like Kid Rock and Metallica,
and of course some Finnish bands because of the lyrics...
I have to mention that parodies done by Bob Rivers are great! =) Oh, Ilkka's tracks are great too! =)

Anything you want to add here (about yourself)?
Hopefully I'll have time to play a bit more Quake this winter!

Quake-related Information

Your nickname (story behind it)?
Well.. I don't have a nickname =)
Ok, when I played in a QW-clan about 3 years ago, my clanmates came up with at name NaMiveH[JK],
because they didn't like that I played with Janne[JK]..
I don't know where that weird-looking nick comes from, and I really don't care! =)

Your Quake config (key bindings, etc.)?
Moving with ESDF
jumping with Space and shooting with mouse
weapons - all the keys near my moving keys..

Size of Quake directory on your HD?
About 500 MB, but grows fast because of my new decent connection...

Your computer (processor/videocard etc.)?
PIII-600, Riva TNT2, 128 MB-SDRAM 100MHz, Trekker 2-button mouse
(piece of a shit), 17 GB HD, 17" Monitor
My old computer is PII-350 with TNT and 64 MB SDRAM. I still play pretty much with that because it runs on DOS with amazing framerates!

Quake settings (resolution, version etc.)?
GLQuake 400x300, Quake version 1.08, GLQuake 0.97, QdQstats 1.7
I'm quite disappointed because I can't get as high frames as I would have wanted with this system.
It doesn't work in DOS, and in GLQuake I can only get about 70 fps.. It runs faster with 400x300 than on 320x200!

First contact to speedrunning (when, how etc.)?
I saw qdq_1949 and after that, I was hooked. I visited NSD and Muad'Dib's sites a lot, and watched nearly all demos.
Then after Ilkka started smashing records, he started QdQ-Finland site, to which I sent a lot of crappy demos I had done before that.
After Ilkka's success I realized that I could make records too, I only had to practise a lot.
So, I started playing really much, and after a couple of weeks I got my first record.
It took a while before I got my first id-record. Then I went to college and I didn't have so much time to play my skills kind
of "rusted" =) Now I'm trying to restore them =)

First speedrunning demo?
First demo was ik1_136 easy 100 % demo
First id demo e3m7_157..

Favorite speedrunning demo(s) from yourself (the one(s) that you're most proud of)?
e1m6_010 and e1m7_024 for QdQwav (unreleased because Markus beat both of them =)
and ik2_203.. I'll probably improve ik2_203 under 2 mins soon because I have some new ideas..

Favorite speedrunning demo(s) from others?
Pretty hard to say =) I like pretty much all of them.. =)

Favorite player (overall/runs/100%/marathon/coop)?
Overall: Ilkka Kurkela/Peter Horvath
Runs: Markus Taipale
100%'s: Nolan Pflug/Thomas Stubgaard

Favorite trick in a demo?
e1m4 fiend boost, I personally enjoy performing e3m1 and e4m1 barreljumps most

Favorite QdQ release?

Favorite original Quake map?
Pretty much all of them again =)

Favorite custom map?
DE and IK-series. Ilkka's maps and BB are good too =)

Most annoying monster/map?
The damned fiend from e2m5. Otherwise the map is great though =)
I don't know the most annoying map, there are little tricks in all of them which make them a less annoying.
Of course every hard map becomes annoying after playing for some hours...

Do you like Doom/Quake2/Q3A?
Do I like Doom?!? Well, I like it more than Quake!! I have even got some
records to Compet-N,
but most of all I enjoy playing Public Demo Archive Of Non Gods, PDANG

What do you think of Quake now?
Great game!

Quake Purity Test score? link
74.5 %
