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!

i hate it


i spent the whole freakin day re-re-re-re-installing my mom’s computer. some files seemed to be corrupted and it was impossible to repair them… i suspect

  1. a virus
  2. mom’s careless email handling
  3. mom’s disk clean up method (which consists of deleting everything that “seems useless” (uh!!))
  4. other reason.

anywayzzz, she now has a “limited” user account (not admin anymore!) on a brand new service packed, firewalled and patched winxp pc. she has her files on a separate partition, so next time (i see it coming) i will have to reinstall, she won’t lose her stuff (hopefully). i will also install an antivirus software, and schedule a full system scan every week or so… yea. but i’m still thinking that the “human factor” is the biggest threat to the system, haha. i cross my fingers.
