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

Hello all.

Been anonymously reading this forum for a few months.

My name is Phil and I am a pen addict.

 

I have been using Lamy Al-Star fountain pens for a few years, love the burnt copper (orange) edition.

I have just acquired a Caran D'Ache Leman and a vintage Mont Blanc 420 from my birth year. 

Looking forward to ink these two up.

 

I hope to be able to contribute something to the community over time.

 

All the best

P

Welcome to the obsession Phil!

Hello Phil and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa.


To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!

Hi, Phil !  

 

I am very pleased to welcome you.  

Please accept our offer of the "Twelve-step Program" to combat the addiction to fountain pens. 

1)  Admit that you have this problem.

2)   .   .   .   .   .   . Who am I fooling ?  There is no such program.  We don't want you to quit.

 

Denial  !    Denial  !    Denial  !   Write with joy.

Zum Augenblicke dürft ich sagen: 
Verweile doch, du bist so schön !
