Hey Jon!

 

I just spent about 6 hours this weekend using your lovely database!  Love it!  20 pens entered (I am too anal when it comes to details) and about 80 to go!  Really enjoy using it!

 

Wanted to pause and say a big thank you for developing this!!!  I went to your jonro website looking for a PayPal button to donate but didn't see one.  I know it takes a lot of time to build DBs like this so I wanted to express my appreciation!

 

Many, Many, Thanks!

 

Richard

Thanks for posting the data base I really didn't want to create on Excel

I don't use either operating system, so tried to open it using Wine in Linux so must be missing some programme. #sigh#

 

Microsoft = pens with nibs that need replacing every 10,000 words and ink that has to be a different colour every time you change the nib

 

Apple: pens that you need to buy a new writing desk every time a new model comes out; proprietary ink, filler, and nib, and only writes on the most expensive paper

 

Linux: you can guess what I'll say.

 

Anyway, fun aside, any thoughts on how I can get this to load in Ubuntu 14xx and after?

This is still the BEST DB for FPs on the net in my never to be humble opinion!

 

Rock on Jon!

Thanks for the great database.  For some reason I could not read the user guide.  It does not have any words, only one graphic.  I have messed up by trying to duplicate the record, and it added one of my pens twice.  So I deleted it.  It shows I have 3 pens in my inventory, but I should only show two.  To make matters worse, I somehow deleted the original file, and now only have the clone.  Please someone tell me how to fix this.  :unsure:

I've been using the database for several weeks now and love it.  I was just about to do an Excel page for my pens when this came along and it's so much better.  Thank You.

I've realized that I have enough pens to warrant tracking the who/what/when/where/ect.   This is a perfect system for what I need.

 

 

Any plans for making a copy and re-titling it "Fountain Pen Ink Inventory"?  I do realize that, as a database, this could be used for both pens and ink as-is.  Just was on my mind as the other thing I need to start tracking!

 

Many thanks for putting this software up for everyone!

After using the software for bit, I now realize it has an Ink Tracking section already built in.  I totally missed that before; no doubt someone in this long thread has already pointed it out.

 

Software just got even more useful!

I loved the DB. Using it on Mac OS, it quits when I try to print.

Any idea to how to address it?
