Going to become a first time donor today - anyone else who hasn't done so at some stage may like to think about the same.


Excellent suggestion! Count me in as well!

 

OK - I've paypal'd a donation. Let's all do it.

I know I'm pretty new, but I'm very happy to see FPN back up.  The other boards just don't cut it, well for me anyway! This place is the best!

I didn't realize how addicted I was. All week I've felt like bugs were crawling up and down my arms, I saw green slime oozing out of my walls, and my insides felt like they were being eaten by weevils. I need my Sandy1. In a manner of speaking.

 

Great job getting this site back to us.


I love the smell of fountain pen ink in the morning.

Just chiming in to say - thanks so very much.  I'm a sysadmin so I've got some idea of what you've had to go through to pull this inertial cow apart put all the pieces back together.

I am glad you are back. Over the past 18 months I have had major health problems and the FPN has kept me alert and increased my pen knowledge...I am even sorry I have given away more than quite a few pens which I find are "rare avis" away. Best wishes.

BIG THANK YOU, you make a great job, thank you for all the hours you spend from your free time to make the FPN site new and save. I missed it much.

 

You are the best, it is not granted to spend all the freetime to make other people happy.

 

Best regards from Germany

Heartfelt thanks to the FPN admin team for their devotion and diligence in getting the site back online.

 

Going 'cold turkey' for the past week has made us appreciate this valuable network even more.
