Monteverde Dc Supershow 2018 Blue

Recommended Posts

I ordered the Teal for this year, and I figured why not get last year too. Here is my review of last year's DC Supershow Blue from Monteverde. My initial impression is that it is simply another iteration of Horizon Blue. You can see from the comparison that they are very close in color. This color was just as well behaved as the Horizon blue and had just as good of flow. It didn't feather on any paper I have used so far. I really like the color but I do feel like I doubled up on colors since I already have Horizon Blue. On the bright side this may also be another one of those colors that is close to Parker Penman Sapphire. I hope you enjoy the review. I would love to hear what everyone thinks. Thanks for looking.

Glorious, punchy blue. Thank you for the review.

Muttering "I do not need more blue ink, I do not need more blue ink, I do not need more blue ink...."

Thanks for the review. And, well, not....

Thank you for the review.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Very nice comparisons, thank you. Blue has come a long way since the days of the ball point pen I was raised on. I’m glad.

      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
