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.

LEGO belt

If I remember well, my LEGO belt was a present from Anya when she went to Berlin for the first time. It basically is a common belt, with a 6x8 LEGO plate glued to the buckle. Which of course lets you be creative.

The first “creation” was a bit lame: an ‘M’ for Manu.

Because a 6x8 plate is pretty small, I thought that pixel art was the easiest thing to do. Where do you find pixel art? Yup, in video games. Here’s a Pac Man ghost made in 1x1 pieces representing the single pixels.

I had of course to do a Tetris themed buckle. It represents that great feeling when you finally can drop that straight tetromino to make a 4 liner.

Then comes a lazy representation of Pong.

Already 2 years since I’ve done that last one…
