Hi, I’m Manu, a biking web developer. I’ve been writing on here since June 2002 about a bunch of different topics. My favorite posts are tagged with ✪.

Why “plothole.net”? As defined on wikipedia,

a plot hole, plothole or plot error is a gap or inconsistency in a storyline that goes against the flow of logic established by the story’s plot. Such inconsistencies include such things as illogical or impossible events, and statements or events that contradict earlier events in the storyline.

This definition suits my life pretty well.

Thanks for reading!

garfield's job interview

i had my first job interviews ever today: Cambridge Technology Partners and unicible. The former went pretty bad, whereas the latter was very relaxed. The HR lady from unicible was making me uncomfortable with her lame “how do would you imagine your career at unicible?” questions. i knew that this kind of questions would eventually come up, and i tried to think about it before going to the interview, but… hell… i don’t have any career objectives! (is that bad?) well, and then she asked about my salary expectations… mmmppffff… i have NO IDEA how much i’m supposed to get paid !?!! she comforted me in the fact that i’m not the first student she interviewed today that doesn’t have a precise vision of his future (that’s not really reassuring, but it made me feel a tick more relaxed). the first interview was cool… maybe too cool. the guy asked me to speak english coz he saw the cmu references on my resume. i babbled something in shakespearian that somehow made him think that my english is good (i couldn’t find the godamn words i was looking for! i hate this!)… oh well… Cambridge’s HR chick was hot!!! (but that’s off subject… ).
