It's also really fun.
This really seems to mess with the part of my brain that's been optimized for playing Tetris, even after ~50 lines... It's like going from being fluent in a language to a complete noob again.

Probably far too hard to play, but that is what I was expecting when I hit the link..
I had an old DOS version of this, and haven't been able to find anything that replicated the experience. This is great.
My site, but his app. Oh and for amusement value note the specs that it was tested against...
way too addicting, btw.
Curious, why you would have had one version work and one would not work.
What could have happened? DNS poisoning, site owned by squatter, or most likely scenario, site is hosted on a low-cost provider, which switches to squatter version when the site gets too much traffic.

This guy is awesome.
What is doubly awesome is that there is no credit on the page as to who made it. He just made something cool, and put it up. Done.
/me hangs head in shame
I'm up to 3700. :D
What you need, when you need it
Back when I was starting with Tetris I would always try to avoid "holes", i.e. empty spaces that are covered on top. And this leads to the requirement for the straight pieces.
I became much better when I started to accept holes and instead just try to keep the top edge a nice shape compatible with many blocks. The straight pieces become a bit of a nuisance, actually.
