Hi, I’m Manu.

I used to have a blog a couple of years ago. I have to admit that I missed it a little, so I decided to go back at it in 2014. I write about a bunch of different topics.

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

a plot hole, or plothole is a gap or inconsistency in a storyline that goes against the flow of logic established by the story’s plot, or constitutes a blatant omission of relevant information regarding the plot, sometimes even contradicting itself. These include such things as unlikely behaviour or actions of characters, illogical or impossible events, events happening for no apparent reason, or, statements or events that contradict earlier events in the storyline.

This definition suits my life pretty well.

Here are a couple of links if you want to know more about me:

And last but not least, here is my resume.

Thanks for reading.

If you’re using another browser, I’m sorry. I don’t find fixing browser quirks very interesting, I do enough of it professionnally.

the problem with changing passwords is not only that you have to remember your new password when you have been using the old one for a long period, but also that you should try not to put up a password with an unintended typo in it! yesterday, i changed my windows admin password from ***** to ********, it worked all nice, i did some computer locking/unlocking to get used to typing the new password (stupid? maybe), everything perfect. then this morning, i get up, turn on my laptop, there comes the windows login screen, i type my new password, and IT’S NOT WORKING !… i freak out, re-re-re-re-re-re-re-type, but nothing… after a while i realize that the input language on the winxp login screen is set to french (!!) (whereas the actual winxp input language is english!)… so yeah, since there is a ‘y’ in my password, and the ‘y’ and the ‘z’ are switched between the french and english keyboard, i was actually typing my password systematically wrong… d’oh!!
