In response to this hilarious feature request, I just patched the game with a major buff to the hacker. http://www.pocketwatchgames.com/forums/index.php?topic=1310.msg5447#new
Contents of the buff:
*First off, the bug where outlets spawn behind staircases and ladders is fixed.
*Second, the Mole can smash walls with outlets... so that...
*There are double the number of outlets in the world. You will never be without an accessible outlet. The Hacker will still have to maintain his viruses as a resource, and they will be disposable and time dependent. But the increased frequency will dull the effect of good/bad luck in their spawn positions.
*And to improve things for the speed runners, Virus speed are increased by 50% or so. I think this is one of the biggest reasons he's not useful for speed runners.
