I was downloading games for my GP2X and one of the first I got was Tetris. There were serveral to choose from,. I happened to pick PyTetris.

Opened the readme and lo and behold, it was made by Barnesy!

What a guy! Bagmaker, loop diabolo pioneer and opensorceror.

I wouldn't say he was a "hacker" I would say a hacker was someone who uses telnet/other stuff to gain access to pc's and other things, cool stuff anyway.

Heh.  I totally missed that.  Yes, I tend not to use the word 'hacker' just because of the negativity some attach to it.   Makes it sound like I've done something naughty.  Good to hear someone downloaded it anyway!

Anyway, er, back to diabolo.  Yes.
