Let's Go On A Safari - A Lamy Safari!

Recommended Posts


Alright - time for round two. I currently have on order the following brand new items:


A Lamy Safari in blue with a medium nib

A Z24 Converter

A 30ml bottle of Diamine Oxford Blue


All this can be yours - if your number is drawn!


I will be out of town for work a couple of days this week, so let's run the deadline to FRIDAY JANUARY, 20th at 12:00 PM EST.


Here be the rules:


- You can only enter once.

- Post a comment under this post - handwritten posts are cool though they won't earn you any extra probability of winning!

- Each entry post will be assigned a number as they are posted.

- I will use random.org to generate a random winning number based off the number of entries.

- Anyone can enter and so long as shipping to your country from the U.S. is not prohibitively expensive and possible, I will ship your prize to you. You are responsible for any customs, etc., of course but this isn't a super expensive giveaway so I don't know if that will be an issue.

- Uh... that's it... I think.


Thanks for playing and good luck!

It would be so cool if I won this, and if shipping to the Netherlands is too expensive for you, I can pay for that myself.

Cool PIF! I would love to be considered :)

The only thing I've ever won was a pineapple upside down cake at a school raffle when I was in the 8th grade. Maybe I'm due to win something again, so count me in. Thanks!

I'd like to enter this giveaway. I don't own any Lamy pens right now, and the Safari is one of their models that I've been thinking about getting eventually, so this is a great chance to get one. Thanks for the offer!

NOTE: I have asked the mod to edit and I know this isn't a big deal, but the ink is actually DIAMINE FLORIDA BLUE. I was choosing between the two to order and went with Florida but typed Oxford. Carry on!

      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.

      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
