Shipping And Final Orders List Sent To Stipula For A Final Check....

Dearest members of the digital fountain pen nut house,   We're getting extremely close to actual shipping of our pens, and we can feel the excitement building up, probably just as all of you who ordered one of these beauties do . Let's look at a couple of points of interest:   1) Shipping The first shipments will leave the factory on Monday. Pens are currently being prepped for the courier service to come and collect them. Shipping will be done in the order of Passaporto only orders (next week

The Fpn Pens Are Being Manufactured!

Dearest members of the digital fountain pen nut house,   Good News Production of the FPN LE pens has started, and shipping will commence on November 15 :bunny01: . The reason for the delay from November 1, to November 15, was a malfunctioning milling lathe, which cut production by 33 %.   We had a very pleasant, almost one hour long talk with our Stipula representative, and here are some short notes on a few of the topics discussed which might interest you:   1) Additional 18K Etruria nibs

A Few Extra Passaportos And Modello-Ts (Sold Out)! Nibs Sold Out Too! Etrurias Sold Out Too! (Last Update: 2012-01-03)

Dearest Members of the Board,   Passaportos and Modello-Ts have been sold out for a while already. Since we had quite a few requests for a few more, we checked with Stipula whether that was possible, maybe from a little spare stock material of the order we placed already.   After a wait of several weeks we now have been told that this is indeed possible, and the additional few pens have been added to our store as a result.   For the quick deciders, we now still have available:   FPN LE Etruria

New Forums, To Be Or Not To Be?

Dearest Members of the board,   Considering the most recent discussion and poll for a new forum, Visconti in this case, I guess now is the time for another attempt at explaning why and how of forums, etc.   Brand forums First of all, the brand forums exist because each of them either represents a brand with a large contribution in posts to the board as a whole, or because a moderator seen as an expert on the brand loved to moderate such a forum here.   General forums Next there are a bunch of g

Now, Where Was I?

Dear me!   Who would have thought the authorities could be so blindingly stupid?   Sorry, Dear Reader. I should make my self clearer, but the last week has been harrowing.   I had intended doing some further work on the History of Murphy Towers, but while researching the subject I came across some data that forced a temporary change of tack.   Up in the Library, browsing through some letters from Johannes Marcus Marci of Kronland (yes, the very same chap!) that Cuthbert had preserved, I came acr

Fpn Pens: Update 2011-08-04

Dearest Members of the Board,   Last Sunday we prepared a complete list of all pens to be ordered, with a conservative estimate for any other pens we would be able to sell until such time that the pens would be manufactured.   This conservative estimate was based on the number of pens sold, and the minimum quantity we needed to at least keep the prices as they were. This means that we have slightly increased numbers for Passaportos and Modello Ts, and stayed with the number of pens we already ha

A Brief History Of Murphy Towers

An email flooded in to Murphy Towers some time back,enquiring about the Organisation, its Aims, its History and its Roots.   There were also a couple of somewhat impertinent questionsabout whether we actually serve a useful purpose! I shall greet that part with the stony silence it merits.   In looking over our records, I also noticed that some of our newer members may not be fully up to speed, as modern day jargon would put it, with our goings on.   To allow my reader some peace of mind, and t

Fpn Pens: Hurry! Time Is Running Out Fast!

Dearest Members of the Board, Since our previous column, a lot has happened. Stipula has been extremely friendly and helpful, and has decided to help us with our pens in a major way, for which we are extremely thankful. This means that although we cannot make up the numbers we originally agreed upon for our pricing here, they have decided to sell to us the lower numbers for the same price, regardless. This means we have a GO for all pen models and variants!   Furthermore, we also have the plea

Fpn Pens: Update 2011-07-20

Dearest Members of the Board,   In the previous column, we indicated we need to be at 93 % of pens paid for, for each manufacturing run, before we can realistically order all of the pens. Fortunately, emailing all members who had voted and had missed the announcements of the Store opening, did have quite an impact, and we would like to thank a certain ex-Admin, who wants to stay anonymous, for helping us out with this rather work intensive exercise!   Now, let's have a look at the current statu

Fpn Pens: Stop Press

Dearest Members of the Board,   When the FPN Store was opened for the voters to pay for their pens, we had votes for 89 Azurite Etrurias, 157 Blue Celluloid Etrurias, 227 Modello Ts, and 215 Passaportos, a total of 688 pens. As 93 % is the cut-off point for ordering, we thought we could go as far as a total of 760 pens, namely 100 Azurite Etrurias, 200 Blue Celluloid Etrurias, 230 Modello Ts, and 230 Passaportos. 93 % of 760 is 707, or 19 pens more than voted for.   The current situation, a lit

Fpn Store Open To Voters - Update June, 10 & 12

Dearest Members of the Board, The FPN Pen Store has been officially open for the voters now for a week already, so in short a good time for an update and further news .     Update (Invoice Details):   There have been quite a few questions on the content of the invoice email and the actual pen(s) ordered, which don't show on the PayPal or the Invoice emails. There actually is a way to check the complete invoice, as we discovered. When you click on "Your profile" (member id at the top right of the

Fpn Pen: Store Open To Voters!

Dearest Members of the Board,   We would like to announce the opening of the FPN Store, right now, for ordering the FPN LE Pens, and first of course to those who voted in the polls or via mail and PM for the specific models of the FPN Pens they would like to order.   Last week, before the crash, we received all information we needed from Stipula to set up the final parts of the store, and just before the crash we managed to write the code in order to make it possible to select all voters to get

Fpn Pen: Status Update, May 21

Dearest Members and Visitors of the Fountain Pen Nuthouse, As mentioned in the previous news update, we still had a few snags to deal with. At the end of last week, we had had extensive contact with Stipula, and we knew the representatives, we are dealing with, would be traveling to the US on Friday, now more than a week ago, to attend an exhibition and to have meetings with their US representatives. Expected return date was Thursday, but it currently looks like that was Thursday after close of

Jumping To Conclusions

I was chagrined this morning to discover that one of Our Esteemed and Highly Valued Moderators (do not confuse OEHVM with OEIG - one set of people works, the other is a little flawed) was having trouble with his Interwebtube Connection.   Naturally he was extremely upset and rashly jumped to the conclusion that the Electrical Computer Wire and Cable Providers were to blame! Luckily I was able to throw some light on his problem when I informed him that Ernst had been in his area for the last week

Dearest Members and Visitors of the Fountain Pen Nuthouse,As indicated, we would try and solve all outstanding issues with regard to the FPN pens the past week, in order to be able to go ahead with the creation of a web store for our FPN LE 2011 editions. We have not succeeded completely in this endeavour, but there are some interesting developments which you will all likely want to hear about.First of all, all the good news.a) Shipping to US, Canada (!) and the countries of the EU will be €10,
