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!

Standard Trailboss

Here’s a bike check I made about my latest BMX. Instead of a simple list of bike parts, the geek inside of me wanted to try CSS3 transforms.

It was originally done as a standalone web page, so it blows up the layout of this page, I know, and it doesn’t display nicely on mobile and tablet neither. Sorry about that.
