I am originally of Chinese
background but I was born in
Like everyone else, I started
playing minesweeper randomly clicking squares in hope of solving a board. About
4 years ago, my sister (thatís right) introduced me to a new concept Ė double
clicking. With this new found weapon, my times dropped down to
This is when I started playing
seriously, getting my times down to
My next breakthrough was on the 28th
of October, when I achieved a 52 on a low 3BV board. Less than a month later I
achieved my first sub50, a 49. Two days after that, I got a 14 on intermediate.
At this point, I thought my times were decent enough to submit
Since then, Iíve broken my expert record by 1 second each time, in roughly the same intervals. My intermediate record went 14->13->11 with quite a lot of luck. I hope to get a 42 on expert by the end of the year. And *hopefully* a sub40 by the end of next year. I donít want to become Lasse and get stuck on 41 forever haha.
My style is very similar to Lasseís, and I believe thatís from watching and learning from his videos numerous times. I recently achieved my 100th sub50 including clone and MS version. And that is my long explanation of my quite short minesweeper career. In conclusion, I never dreamt of becoming this good ;)
I have only a few interests besides
minesweeper. Once of which is golfffffffffffffffff, I
love golf. I only recently started playing, probably at the start of this year.
Iíve been taking golf lessons every 3 weeks, so you could say Iím decent. If
youíve ever played golf, you would know itís a very frustrating sport. I donít
play competitively, only for leisure and I doubt Iíll ever be THAT good to play
competitively. To those people who play golf, my handicap is probably in the
30s. I could probably hit the ball 200m with my driver Ė Iím getting used to
lower woods, starting off small so thatís what Iím estimating. Anyways, off
with the golf terminology, I just love golf. Thankfully,
Iíve also done some webdesign before. Nothing that special, but Iíve made a few sites before. Basically, I made the Ďflashí part of the website, but I still know how to code HTML. A good flash site for tutorials on some confusing actionscripting would be www.flashkit.com. I just know the basics of actionscripting, Iím not a superprogrammer.
Since I am still in the prime time of my teenager life, I donít have many interests or hobbies. However, I am quite fascinated about science, specifically physics. Basically, things to do with Space, Einsteinís theory of relativity and the beginning of the Universe floats my boat. Hence my goal is to do a science related course in uni.
Minesweeper has provided me with a lot of mixed feelings over the years Ė fun, excitement and frustration. This game will quite possibly, contribute to the downfall of my educational career. So I will see, I might delete it off the face of my computer in a few months time to save my life. But donít worry I will be back. So wish me luck, so I that can sub40 in a hope to reduce my urges to play minesweeper every examination period. To the minesweeper community - Good Luck and Have Fun!
