About me

Hello again, I'm Laurens Andriessen and I live in the Netherlands. YES, it's almost always raining here in this little country, and NO I don't use weed or drugs or whatever ;-) Currently I'm 18 years of age (21th of March, 1990). I have, besides a good PC (read below), the following consoles/gadgets:

  • Nintendo 64 (SOLD)
  • Xbox (SOLD)
  • Xbox 360 (twice: one broken Premium- and one working Elite-edition)
  • Nintendo DS (two times (one for me, one for my brother))
  • PDA (Acer N30) (broken)
  • LG C3380 (mobile phone)

I've been away for quite a while, but now I'm alive and back in action! :D

Some Interesting Information

  • A CT or T model in CS:S is not 64 units high (as I read somewhere), but 78 units, which is far more believable. Since 78 units = 78 inches = 198,12 centimeters... But the Source engine allows players up to a maximum height of 72 units (73 is not passable (standing))
  • The maximum slope a person can climb in Source is 45 degrees...
  • A step of a stair can be at a maximum height of 18 units, since that's the maximum of a climbable or oversteppable box.
