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, everyone. Finally decided to join the FPN. One day awhile back I happened upon a video of someone using a fountain pen and demonstrating how they worked, and I was mesmerized by it. I've been using them constantly and collecting a bit here and there since then. My most used pens are my Lamy 2000 (M) which I use for journaling, and my Pilot Vanishing Point (EF) that I use for jotting down notes at work (I take a lot of notes). Unfortunately I don't know many people who are into fountain pens, so I'm excited to have a place to discuss them with other's who share my interest in them.

You have some excellent pens there!  You might want to go to a pen show - perhaps the Chicago one? - when it comes.  You'll find lots of friendly people there and learn lots of things.

Hello 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!

Welcome !  

 

I have a LAMY 2000.  It is one of the smoothest fountain pens I own.  Enjoy yours.

Thanks, everyone. The warm welcome is appreciated.  :)

 

 

Well, hello! What part of Indiana?

Hello and welcome to FPN from a fellow Hoosier.

I am in NW Indiana, where are you?

 

I'm in Southern Indiana. Just across the river from Louisville.

 

 

You have some excellent pens there!  You might want to go to a pen show - perhaps the Chicago one? - when it comes.  You'll find lots of friendly people there and learn lots of things.

 

Erick

 

I'd love to go to a pen show sometime. I could probably make it to one in Chicago some time, if I made a weekend of it.

Welcome to our little corner of the universe from a pen user in San Diego. You made great choices of pens, but I would've gone with a broad nib ;)

 

I've been wanting to get a broad nib pen here recently. Medium just tends to be my comfort zone, and the extra-fine on the Vanishing Point is so I can safely use it on most any paper since I take it to work with me.

 

Welcome aboard, from Charleston, SC.

I have some family in Charleston. Any pen shows or good pen shops around that area?

 

Welcome !  

 

I have a LAMY 2000.  It is one of the smoothest fountain pens I own.  Enjoy yours.

 

Yeah, the Lamy 2000 is a fantastic pen. I make excuses to use it as frequently as possible. I've thought about picking up a second one some time, but for now I'm going to be good.  :P
