'''Longshot ''' was a demo coder, founder and leader of the famous [[Logon System]] demo group. A pseudonym for Serge QuerneQuerné, he was initially based in southern France but later moved to Paris.
== Biography ==
Initially going under the pseudonym 'Logon 1' (the name Logon he explained in a scrolltext as "a Belgian idea"), he released a series of single-part demos , each of them showcasing a new technique he had learned - or, in many cases, discovered. These included raster bars, overscan, and split modes in the earliest productions. The first demo was coded while he was working at [ Ubi Soft]'s "castle" headquarters. Though some of these demos seem fairly simple in retrospect, at the time, Serge's demo-coding skill was only equalled by perhaps [[Fefesse]] and [[NWC]].
A stepchange came with the [[Longshot Demo]], the first in which he adopted his new pseudonym. This included hardware splitting and combined more effects on screen at once. [[Revolog]] (or Revolution) followed in a similar vein but was a level more accomplished again. At the same time, Longshot participated in the [[Amazing Demo]] with [[Naminu]] and [[P007]] of [[Malibu Crackers]].
Though most respected for his coding skills and innovations, Serge's main achievement was perhaps the creation and fostering of the Logon System supergroup, the like of which has not been seen since.
Longshot has written technic technical articles in some columns of the french French magazine [[Amstrad Cent Pour Cent]].
