FPN appearing slow

Dearest Member or Visitor of the little Fountain Pen Nut house on the digital prairie,
Due to a continuing DDoS attack, and a hardware malfunction, FPN is moving only slowly. Hosting Support is dealing with both issues, but unfortunately both take time. Until these both resolve, FPN will continue to be slow. ETA is not available yet. Apologies for the inconvenience.
Warm regards, the FPN Moderator & Admin Team

Been a fountain pen user for about two years and this is my first time joining the network.  I'm located in Dallas, TX and appreciate the chance to connect with others around the world who enjoy the experience of these wonderful writing instruments.  My main focus in joining is to listen, learn, shop, and share.

Welcome !  

 

What do you use for daily writing ?   Do your interests lie in budget pens, vintage pens, jewelry ?   I find that I enjoy finding vintage fountain pens of the "grade" used by the everyday people and students of the time,  ie the pens found in book bags and at the drugstore cash register.

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

A bit late, but: 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!
