  1. Shanghai Knife Dude

    Jinhao X159 - the pen survived Omicron

    This is ecstasy. This is the best 5 dollar ever spent. For those of you received the first of batch of pen in Sept 2022, the first launch of this pen went much earlier. The delay was due to the epic Shanghai Lockdown 2022 Apr - May early Mar - the launch of X159 (Gen I, only in black with silver trim, three turns to open the cap) in Taobao. Initial batch was sold out quick mid Mar - outbreak of Omicron all over the cities 1st April - Lockdown of the city. Commercial entities like Jinhao plant in Shanghai was no exception. 1st Jun - release of the lockdown. mid Jun - X159 back to shelf in Taobao Jul - X159 (Gen II/ two more colours of maroon and red wine red/ golden trim available/ two turns to open the cap/ a complete switch of nib collector, which was shared with later 9019) was found in the market, while Jinhao was simply too shy to talk about it. back to the pen. I bought 9019 and 9016 first, then X159. 9019 was said to be an update to the X159. But, while I was holding my copy of X159, the details and finishing is on par with 9019. Maybe a X159 Gen III? who knows. The one with red barrel and cap is 159, nothing resemblant to the X159. Pro: 1. It got to be kidding for a No.8 steel nib + pen for 5 dollars. This pen will still sell at $50. 2. the acrylic material feels as good as my MontBlanc, honestly. Con: 1. 1 ml ink capacity, which was quite standard in 2022. But with the monster cartridge of 2ml in 9019 9016 (Jul, 2023), I was spoiled. I expect the next version of X159 coming with a 2ml tank. 2. high ink intake position, which is up in the feed butting the section. I was using Lamy 30ml 100% full bottle for demonstration. Once the ink below 70% of the bottle, this pen will die of dehydration.

  4. From the album: Chinese pens

    In reply to: When the question is not how to visually match a single ink converter in isolation against one's internalised knowledge-base of what's in existence and correctly identify its type, the answer is much more obvious.

  5. It helps to explore this yourself, revisiting once in a while if need be, and keep in mind where each of those personal info fields are entered. Don't leave it until the urge to change something specific to come upon you, and only then bother to ask the question! Invest the time surveying upfront, instead of waste it later waiting for an answer from nobody in particular. Most of the fields shown above are self-evident as to what they are. I think the only ones that could do with explanation are: Security and Privacy: There is only one setting under there, and that is a toggle for whether your online status (including ‘last active’ date or time) is visible to others Content View Behavior: That has nothing to do with what others can see about you, but only where you would like to start reading when accessing content Enable status updates: This toggle enables/disables the public feed on your profile page; if you disable it, then nobody (including you) can post publicly visible ‘status updates’ or any other message against your profile, but if you enable it, then anyone — friend, foe, or complete stranger — can post something there whenever, without waiting for you to initiate and then only reply to what you wrote Notification Settings have nothing to do with what others can see about you, and so is out of scope for this article, and I'm not going to delve into those right now. (You can look here, here, and here to wrap your head around how notifications work with respect to followed content.) N.B. There is a possibility that some of the above settings and data fields may not be available to Bronze members and/or Silver members, but I have no way of testing that or scoping it out. — • — Another way of getting to the Edit Profile dialog, and the way to change your profile photo (or ‘avatar’), is here: — • — Freeform, custom member titles that one enters for oneself are long gone, and have not been a thing since FPN came back from a long hiatus and platform upgrade late in 2020.
