i ordered a bottle of R&K Salix on Amazon, but didn't realize it was shipping from Germany. The wait begins!

 

Any advice on staying sane during a long boat ride across the Atlantic?

In May, I ordered a pen that was shipped from Austria. The outside delivery date was July 4. It is now September, and I still don't have the pen, though I did get a nice refund from the company.

 

What gave me peace during the wait was to remember that the pen would eventually arrive. What gave me peace when I realized that it might never arrive was to realize that it was just a pen. After I realized that the pen would never arrive, despite the company's promises, what kept me sane was the realization that it was a luxury item. I finally found true peace when I was working my budget and noticed that I was about $100 ahead of where I should be. Finally, I realized that the extra was the pen that never arrived. I think this helped me make peace with the pen that never arrived. I recently saw this same pen from a domestic retailer and felt no urge to purchase it.

 

Actually, in light of the OP's post, my story might be a bit depressing. But, the real lesson behind my story is the importance of perspective. Remember that it's just a bottle of ink.

Nominated as post of the year... :D

 

Perspective is something we all seem to lack (some more than others ;))..... thanks for the reminder..

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      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.
