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!

In early 2015, I pledged for the Brik Case, a LEGO plate you could clip onto the backside of your laptop’s screen. Unlike most of the Kickstarters I supported back then, this one succeeded and even turned into a company.

I was never a fan of having a dozen stickers on my laptop, so I decided to instead make a LEGO version of the logo of the company I was working at.

Instead of using the 1x1 fake LEGO plates provided with the Brik Case, I decided to go all-in and place a pick a brick order.

I left Doodle in 2017 and joined Bestmile shortly after. I again got a pre-touchbar pre-shitty-keyboard 15” MacBook Pro, so I could re-use the Brik Case again for the company’s logo.

This time, it was a bit less elaborate, and done with the 1x1 plates.
