Thanks to Patrick Scott Patterson with the Examiner for the heads up on this rather sad news. George Leutz was 36 hours into the still standing 28 year-old record for Q*Bert when a machine was unplugged near his, which caused his machine to reset. George had already scored an impressive 16.8 million points and was just past the halfway mark of the 70 hours on one quarter record set by Canadian legend, Rob Gerhardt, back in 1983. The world record attempt was being held at the famed Richie Knucklez in NJ.
