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

Dear all

my name is Vivardo and I registered today at this forum. For some time I've been looking for the fountain pens I've had or met in my life, some of these more precious to me, others I've just used. Finally I'm looking for the ones I've always wanted but I could not afford when young. Most of these are used, and therefore they need a lot of care, I hope with the help of this forum.
Happy Easter to you all
Vivardo

Vivardo welcome to the forum. I've lived two years in Perugia, when I was two years old, but that was many, many years ago !

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

 

You live in a very beautiful city! I wish I could sit on the Piazza IV Novembre today, listen to the Cathedral bells, drink a good espresso and write with my favourite fountain pen!

 

I think you should spoil yourself a bit and buy a lovely Aurora "Papa Beato" to write your memoir.


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!

- Winston Churchill
