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!

bmx mailorder

it’s over. i’m done. i will never again order bmx parts in germany (or anywhere in europe, that is). those shops are just useless. every single time they mess something up. their stock management is slacky too, their websites always show that the parts are available, but they’re usually not. so i end up waiting weeks, even months, for my order. i’ve ordered 5-6 times from danscomp and never had any problem. when i was in the US, they delivered the stuff in 2-3 business days. last time i ordered (international order to switzerland), i got my order within 1 week. none of the german mailorders never got it better than that. it’s a shame. last but not least, it’s not even more expensive to buy the parts in the US.
