First contact to COMPET-N (when, how etc.):
I had always known about the site, but wasn't that interested in it because it was kinda complicated for me to navigate and I could never find any of the demos (before the database), but later Waldon was like, yelling at me to upload something, and he showed me how the whole thing worked. :)
First COMPET-N demo:
Favourite COMPET-N demo(s) from yourself (the one(s) that you're most proud of):
pp09-150 ... Not that it's really that good, but I spent a LOT of time working on it, and for most of that time it appeared to be hopeless, but somehow, somehow I knew I'd be able to do it, and I did. Proud moment, yah. :)
Favourite COMPET-N demo(s) from others:
Anything from Sedlo, Drew DeVore, and Ian Sabourin. Oh yah, and you can't forget Bjorn Hamels' 30nm coop, best C-N demo EVER, would be even better if his partner Henning wasn't slacking off so much. hahaha, j/k. :)
Favourite DOOM or DOOM2 map:
e1m7 and e4m6
Favourite TC/megawad:
Alien Vendetta, no doubt about that, it's brilliant.
Do you like Quake?
Meh, it's okay, just too slow.
What do you think of DOOM now?
Doom kicks ass, that's the bottom line.
Anything you want to add here:
Yah, advice to any new speed runners out there, DON'T EVER... EVER... EVER TELL ADAM WILLIAMSON ABOUT ONE OF YOUR DEMOS. NEVER! If you do, you can be sure he'll have something in incoming within the hour that is so much faster than your demo that it'll make you look REALLY bad. It's what he does. :)

Chris is another new player to COMPET-N, he's done mostly speedrunning style runs so far. His Pacifist runs of Plutonia and NM100S runs of TNT are the most noteworthy, though I hope he shows other capabilities as well. As always, time will tell :)
