Oh no! It's quivering! Is it ... alive?

It looks like ... oh my goodness! Did it just wave? Watch out, something's happening...

DRINK IT!

Do you think I'm mad? Wait, no, don't answer that.

 

Besides, it's a bit late. It escaped and is out there terrorising poor innocent fountain pens with its gelatinous radioactivity. What have I done...

I think I've found a solution to my no-army-for-world-domination problem. Thanks karinh! :thumbup:

Wow. That's scary! :sick:

 

We should ask that this thread be pinned in answer to the question about mixing inks, even in the same series in the same brand. Do it in a container, not in your pen!

I came here for the pictures and stayed for the conversation.

Faaaaantastic!

 

When mixing, my safety kit is orange fish nets under my slacks, and my Scott airpak.

You may choose to do likewise.

 

I am truly impressed that you lived to tell about such a thing.

 

will you be working on room temp nuclear fusion any time soon??

It's life, Jim, but not as we know it.

Yesterday is history.

Tomorrow is a mystery.

Today is a gift.

That's why it's called the present

Just thinking about what would happen if you did that mix inside a nice, expensive LE pen...

When I went to Evil Scientist school, I majored in Orbital Death Ray; I had no idea that this kind of horrifying stuff was going on in the chem lab down the hall!

You people make me laugh (at 06:08 - cat thinks I've lost the plot but whatever) :roflmho:

 

I know better than to mix ink in a pen unless I know it's a safe mix but I truly didn't expect to create life with these two. I guess it's only to expected, considering the names of the inks. I wanted purple highlighter and now I've got this scary ink blob out there somewhere creating havoc in pen boxes and wraps.

 

Funnily enough, Hellfire mixed with a few drops of Nav. Turq. didn't jellify, it only went a teeny bit sedimented. Mind you, the ratios were way different.

 

I shall take all your ideas about safety clothing and future experiments on board and see what type of creature I can invent next. :eureka:

Did you apply for a haz-mat permit before disposing of it?

Were you able to 'put it to sleep', or is it bulletproof?

I caught it slinking around out in the garden this afternoon, half-melting in the rain and hail, so I hurriedly upended a bucket over it whilst I put on my gloves, mask and boots. I sneaked back with the nastiest sprays from the garden shed and, kicking the bucket away while holding a sprayer at the ready in each hand, I gave it a full blast of each spray, not stopping until the containers were empty.

 

I almost felt sorry for it as it squirmed and cried there on its deathbed of damp autumn leaves but then I thought of my lovely pens, and what this thing could do to them. Hardening my heart, I gave it a final spray for good measure. Once it was definitely dead I collected it up with an old spoon and interred it in an old lead-lined casket which I then soldered shut. It is now awaiting collection by the Hazmat team from our local tip.

 

I have warned them what they face and hope that they take due precaution as, even dead, I am not sure what that thing could do.

 

I have learned my lesson, for now...

Huh! It's eaten its way out of the lead casket and it's heading back for revenge. Foolish mortal- did you think that the sprays would do anything except feed it?

Well, you could've just called in an air strike, yes?

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
    • Arkanabar
      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
