I also don't have much experience posting written content so I will be figuring out the best width for the page

Welcome! I can't quite class myself as a Geekhack level keyboard addict but I do love my mechanical keyboards...Massdrop is killing me now between keycap drops AND fountain pens.

 

When I first got a fountain pen a couple of months back I feared it would be wasted because I do spend so much time on computers, but I've noticed I'm writing at every opportunity now, it's been a really nice change of pace. For the first time ever I wrote a list on the train this morning instead of just putting the list on my phone. It felt good :D

 

I hope you will find it has the same positive impact for you.

Welcome, Frosty !

 

I have only tested a Pilot E95 at a pen shop. I asked about it because it is a handsome pen.

Possibly an addition to my collection in the near future. I hope to read your impressions .

 

Write with joy.

Nice to find someone who also likes keyboards. :)

It is also really nice that you aren't quite as into it as I am. You never know the true feeling of being broke until you take up a hobby like that. Although I do imagine that this hobby is also quite the wallet killer.

Hi Frosty and welcome to FPN

 

A marker.... tsk tsk tsk... on the fountain pen network.... :headsmack: .

Heresy? No, not that bad. Hey, as long as you feel happy with it.. :) ...

But I am sure you'll find much more joy in writing with a well balanced fountain pen suited to your hands and writing style.

And I'm sure these pages will provide you loads of information to aid the search for such a fountainpen.

 

Enjoy the forum...

Don't worry, I will be moving away from the marker :P

I have just bought an Elite 95s from one of the users here and it should take a couple weeks to arrive. A review will be posted and it should be an interesting one coming from a first-timer.

Hello and welcome, Frosty. I'm glad you joined us. Please don't hesitate to share your questions and opinions. I hope you enjoy your time with us. By the way, I once thought of living up there in Northern Canada. I probably should have gone when I had the opportunity. As it is now, I live in a place that is a desert -that is dry always- and yet is extremely cold for much of the year. Not quite the best of both worlds . . .

 

Again, welcome.

Although I am close to Toronto, I unfortunately have work on Sundays... :/

I should have joined a week earlier :D

 

I had visions of you living near Timmins or Thunder Bay when you said "the great north of Canadia", wood cabin style after reading your letter, I take things too seriously :headsmack: . I used to live in Ottawa and I would look at the Toronto forecast with envy, then Timmins to remind myself it could be worse on those wonderful -20C or worse days.

A warm Alberta howdy! Hope you like the place.

Sometimes a technology reaches perfection and further development is just tinkering. The fountain pen is a good example of this.
