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.

Ah, this proves to be a great day: FPN is back! YAY!!!!  :cloud9:

Seems that Murphy's law applied on this end as well: I got my hands on a Pelikan 100N that needed repair and, alas, the one place I could get advice from regarding this project was offline!  :wallbash:

 

A big  :thumbup:  :thumbup: to all the team for doing their best against the odds to have FPN online and kicking once more! THANK you!

so glad FPN is back. :bunny01:  :bunny01:  :bunny01: In the words of Joni Mitchell, you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone!

A while back I had a fractured pelvis and was housebound for a time, and FPN was a constant source of education, information, fun and friendship. These few days without FPN have really made me appreciate it. I have just made my first donation.
