LMB - fire
RMB - strafe on
space - use
a - speed (though I've started using "always run" since DosDoom)

Size of DOOM directory on your HD:
Around 120 mb... sometimes I cut it down to around 50 and it grows back :)
First contact to COMPET-N (when, how etc.):
Found it on ftp.cdrom.com together with a friend who had internet access (I didn't, at the time). Then when I got my own, started downloading demos.
First COMPET-N demo:
e4m9 UV 100% kills/secrets in what seems like 5 hours :) (around 13 minutes, I believe)
Favourite COMPET-N demo(s) from yourself (the one(s) that you're most proud of):
lv10-029 or e1m4-022 I guess, unless you count DdQ and D2dQ as compet-n demos...
Favourite COMPET-N demo(s) from others:
Kai's built lmps, they're so awesome... specifically the lv24/lv32 built ones. But really it is so hard to make a choice here. The COMPET-N is filled with awesome demos from all players.
Favourite DOOM or DOOM2 map:
11, 14 and 29
Favourite TC/megawad:
The Plutonia Experiment, I obviously can't choose something that I built
Do you like Quake?
http://www.planetquake.com/qdq/ will tell you the answer :)
What do you think of DOOM now?
It's still got the best gameplay in single/DM I guess, but I'm not going to keep playing it much longer unless I can play multiplayer.
Anything you want to add here:
COMPET-N is a great thing, thanks to Istvan and Adam and of course the players for keeping it alive.

Yonatan started as a keyboarder, improved his keyboarding skills to the limit (I guess he was the best keyboarder besides Istvan and Patrick Martin at that time) He changed to mouse when recording demos for the first HR collection. After that, all that Quake playing improved his skills, and now he is considered one of the best speedrunners all time. His demos are recognizable from his elegant, fluid, flawless movement, and extremely precise shooting. Besides speedrunning, Yonatan is an excellent Max player, even though he doesn't hold many records now. Yonatan is also the co-author of Hell Revealed, everyone's favourite megawad... What else? Shame that you don't play Nightmare, Yonatan :)
