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.

N.B. this site has been tested on the most recent versions of Safari and Chrome on Mac OS X, as well as Safari on iOS. If something seems broken on one of those browsers, shoot me an email. If you’re using another browser, I’m sorry. I don’t find fixing browser quirks very interesting, I do enough of it professionnally.

Comment placer du HTML par dessus une Applet :

Some objects, like applets, select-boxes and iframe’s are not actually drawn by your browser but by the operating system. These objects are always on top of the HTML elements rendered by your browser. You cannot put them below HTML elements with a lower z-index. The key to the solution is that both applets and iframe’s are managed by the operating system. You can layer these with respect to each other with the z-index. You can create an iframe with the exact same position and dimension as the div (or any other element) you want to float on top of the applet. You can have the iframe sit on top of the applet with a higher z-index. The HTML (e.g. div element) can float on top of the iframe with an even higher z-index.
