Tonight my first full run was 3:22, and my second full run was 3:11, besting the record by a full second. I know I made at least one serious error, so I think I can shave an extra second off with a perfect run. Whether this is even close to the theoretical lower limit or not, I don't know. I know I am exploiting every trick I know for this particular level.
I'll get the PlayStation downstairs for recording purposes this weekend, I hope.
