Do the electronic means count as well?
In that case, here's my arsenal...

I should probably take a picture of some dip pens, too :)

Thanks Manny for your understanding :P

LaTeX is a document preparation / typesetting system. I'd highly recommend taking a look at it if you do some writing on the computer :)

Why would you use emacs when Vim is CLEARLY superior?

Not that I'm biased or anything... :unsure:

Hehe... young'uns... :)

I actually do use Vim quite often, when something would be faster than doing it within Emacs (Evil-mode is not yet a complete Vim implementation, but the fact that Vim can be implemented in Emacs tells you something).
Otherwise, have you taken a look at org-mode, AucTeX, Magit, and all those other awesome things that Vim lacks? ;)

Unfortunately I haven't. I've yet to really start getting serious about learning code. I have vim and I've always seemed to see that vim was better than emacs, being more lightweight and other things like that. Emacs seems like the more complete solution to everything, however, and I would probably end up converting just because of my obsessive need to be able to have EVERYTHING in one package.

Written with a ballpoint pen! My parker trotter (I'm such a rebel)

Practicing my flourishing by goofing off. The other two pages shall be in Musinkman's thread. Thoughts? Honestly I enjoy this pen just as much as my fountain pens. It's so incredibly smooth compared my xf cross and it never ever skips (I write incredibly light with the cross to minimize scratching, so it skips sometimes when my hand leaves the page). My waterman is a little better, but this pen is a thinner line than it. Just about perfect for cursive. But I still like my cross better for writing. This is my favorite flourishing and large capital pen, however. But the Waterman is my favorite for huge things.

Yeah, I've already got one operating system to run Vim in... I don't need to run an Emacs in between them ;)

Your practice sheet looks like how I feel before that 1st cup of coffee.

I'll take that as a.... complement. I think.

But yeah, practicing flourishes plus a nice dose of ADHD does not for a neat practice sheet make!

I was mostly teasing. I knew what you meant, but thanks for the letter complements! It's my normal handwriting, I wasn't even trying to make the letter forms good, all I was focusing on was making the flourishes not ugly.

Windows phone 7 doesn't have an app that allows me to upload pictures to imgur instantly, or photobucket, or anything like that so I can't set up something to easily post replies in writing... Oh well. When I get a new phone, perhaps this summer, I should be able to do that.
