Hello From Malaysia!



sihumchai

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

 

Long time lurker here, bout time I said hi in this forum :)

 

As the title says, I'm from Malaysia. My FP fascination & addiction came to me sometime mid last year after my brother acquired some Lamy's for drawing use. Soon after, I got myself my first FP, a Pilot Prera in demonstrator black. Though this wasn't my first outing with FPs, but I couldn't quite get it to work while I was younger, so I never quite bothered.

 

I'm also a lefty, and I did get a comment on how disastrous it would be for lefties to use FPs.

 

Would like to meet some local FP users sometime :)

Hi and welcome to FPN

 

Yes, lefthanders have the problem that their hand tends to move through the still wet ink, so they have to compromise their writing grip. But being righthander I don't know first hand...

 

 

enjoy the forum

Hello from the UK ... though I did grow up in Malaysia many years ago!

Greetings, that was nice to know of. I have a close friend of mine who has migrated to the UK a long long time ago. It sure would be nice if they shared the same hobby as I do.

Welcome !

 

All "lefties" are not the same. However, FPN membership includes many left-handed writers. I am confident

that they can offer solutions.

 

Write with joy.

      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.

      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
