Local Portland guy beats Asteroids record that has stood for over 27 years

I met this guy when he was attempting his 2006 world record attempt at the local Ground Kontrol just a dozen blocks down the street from my place.  I just walked in on a weekend and he was the only guy in the place playing.  I chatted with him a bit while he was playing and he seemed pretty friendly.  Glad to hear he made it this time.  He had gotten about 20+ hours into it the last time when the machine overheated and crashed on him.
