My Journey To Get The Perfect Notebook (Spoiler: I Made My Own)



Recommended Posts

That sounds very nice. If you want, I can send you back a small sample of Tomoe River paper.

And, to be very honest with you, I am mostly interested in paper produced in Brazil - if, that is, it's fountain pen friendly, and lightweight.

But I did like your notebook.

You could try and buy the pads from this link and see if they ship it to you.

Although Papiamento does have a relationship with Portuguese, it's more of an ancestral one... so I am not too sure what exactly I'd be buying, if I tried. Your link sends me to a Tracing Pad - isn't that transparent paper? I can get that locally, though not from Brazil, and I have played with it, but it's not really what I'd be looking for... which would be 70 gsm writing paper that's fountain pen friendly.

Could you clarify a little?

Thanks in advance! and of course, thanks for the link. If the paper is what I'm looking for I'd take the next step and see if they'd be willing to ship me some pads...

The paper in the link is the one I used for the notebook. It is called tracing paper but it isn't transparent. I don't know why it is called that, it is thin but not transparent. Each of the products on the page are just different size pads A4, A3, A2 and so on.

Thanks for clearing that up. I will try and order a few and see what develops.

 

I am unable to buy from them. They want me to register but I cannot enter a valid CPF, whatever that is.

So that fizzled out pretty quickly. Well it was a nice try...

You could try sending an e-mail to their contact (it will be named contato) and see what they can do for you. This paper is exclusive to them so it is worth a try.

      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
