Kove has contributed his considerable technical expertise to a number of Fällt's code-related works, helping to update and upgrade them. Notably collaborating with Fällt designers Fehler to create Imbecil Version 1.1, utilising the GD Library to create a more efficiently coded version of the work (delivering a considerably better quality work in less than 1% of the previous version's code).
A hacker in the truest sense of the word, his contribution to Fällt is ongoing.
