Apologies if I should have posted this elsewhere, and also for being a little(or a lot)OT.

 

I'm watching the tennis, and Rafael Nadal is wearing an outfit which is the exact shade of blue I want in an ink. Like sky blue, only more saturated.....mouth-wateringly blue, blue.....

 

And today is my 60th birthday, and a year ago today my husband had the final stroke which was to lead to him leaving on May 29th. So, thus is a surreal, difficult time, and I am keeping myself busy in ways I can.

 

And apologies again if this is too personal.....but I do love that blue( and I am not by nature a blue lover....red, red, the brighter and bloodier, the better).....

I'll leave the suggestions to the experts, but I can link some photos of the outfit I think you're referring to.

I hope you are well, all the best.

Thank you, for the good wishes, and the pictures to show the colour(I love that colour....but he's not really my cup of tea as far as tennis players go. Im more of a fan of Francesca Schiavone, and the wonderful though now retired Amelie Mauresmo)

I just gotta say, this is going to be an awesome topic. "Recommend me an ink color that matches this outfit." :D

 

(Also, Sailor Souten might come close. At least to the section near the waistband of the shorts, where it is a little darker. It's not quite as "baby blue" like the shirt though.)

Current Wishlist:

Visconti, Visconti, and...more Visconti! (And some ST Duponts too). (Ok fine, getting on the Omas and Montblanc trains now too. Toot toot.) (And maybe on the Montegrappa one too, but only for the Miyas.)

Jarkko Niemenen(sp?) appears to be wearing tartan shorts ....ok, who knows of a tartan ink, then? (I know....just trying a feeble attempt at humour.... )

One of the Waterman Phileas pens had that blue in it.

I'm not the expert but the only sky blue I have is iroshizuku ama-Iro. It'll look less saturated in a fine nib compared to the picture (an old picture). Written with noodler's ahab.

I only caught the last set of that match, so while Rafa may have started out in diamine turquoise, by the end he was a very sweaty ku-jaku.

 

Have a fantasic birthday, Alexcat.

Happy Birthday! I hope you will find the shade you are looking for. I feel like Diamine must have something nearby.

Maybe Steel Blue? http://www.gouletpens.com/IS-D7011/p/IS-D7011

Or turquoise? http://www.gouletpens.com/IS-D7003/p/IS-D7003

The turquoise looks like "the very dab"(trans.: "just the thing").....thank you :)

Thank you, and yes....heh....I get he's never been called "a very sweaty ku-jaku" before(.and likely won't again, but that appeals to me)

 

Thanks for the smile, and the kind wishes

Let's see if I can even remember. From left to right: C/F, Concorde, Lauréat, Phileas, Expert, Préface, Gentleman, Opera. I think that's it for that tray.

      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
