Speedier demo
The current speed demo for the first level of Tomb Raider has a time of 3:12. I practiced last night, with my first run coming in at just over 4 minutes. I was horrified! After a few half-runs, however, my next full run was 3:25. With a weakening left hand, I gave up for the night.

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.

Heh. Today started out pretty poor, but Adam and Dan have rescued it with two hearty laughs. Thanks. :^)
