FPN appearing slow

Dearest Member or Visitor of the little Fountain Pen Nut house on the digital prairie,

Due to a continuing DDoS attack, FPN could be moving only slowly. Hosting Support is dealing with this. The earlier reported hardware issue has been fixed. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Warm regards, the FPN Moderator & Admin Team

I note that Hebrew, Greek, Arabic and Egyptian characters all seem to have been designed for use with a squared-off nib. Not a lot of thick-and-thin variation, but pretty little serifs to finish off the letterforms.

It’s useful to compare with Chinese and Latin.
