Update information

A Couple of Numbers (and some pictures)

Since the last update, there’s only a couple of new pages, but they’re very… um… German? I have what is very nearly a profile page for the Pelikan 400, thanks to having briefly handled a Pelikan 520 , which is a 400 in a very fancy outfit. Very close in time and space, but rather more of a …

Good news, slightly good news, and that other sort.

I went a got a TWSBI Go, so there’s a new page up for that. This is the good news, as is the fact that someone has finally confirmed that the thing I have suspected of being a Waterman Jiffie is, in fact, one of those. Slightly good news lies in the fact that I …

A Single Thing for Spring

A very small update, thanks to a donation from a wonderful friend.  I find I am now the owner of a Waterman Number Seven, and thus can run up a reference page for it. This has seen the requisite updates appear in the various galleries, too.

Just ONE MORE thing…

This official notice of some updates on the site is, in the case of several of them, extremely tardy. I put this down to not only the usual real-life (shudder) demands on my time, but also the way things had been dribbling in at intervals.  So, since the last time I did anything with this, we …

A Publication Two Years in the Making!

But first, a quick mention of recently added material right here: The Sheaffer Pop has been added to the page for the Sheaffer Award… because there might be some minor differences, but I can’t shake the sense that it is just a renaming; An extremely elderly No. 16 S.F. has been added to the gang …

Apparently the Mountain Will Come to Us

First, to address the previous news item here: That is sufficient to get the hub happening, and hooray!  However, there is room for more, so if you are going to be within striking distance of here on 21 September and want to attend (and get free Pelikan stuff!), then go to this site and sign …

Thumping a Tub for a Pelikan Hub

Pelikan Hubs registrations are open, and I’m giddy about it, because there is a move afoot to have a hub happen right here in my own home town, Regina.  I am, therefore, reproducing almost the entirety of a blog-entry I just posted on the topic, because why should you waste time clicking on this link …

Spring Cleaning

I suddenly find I have a lot updates to make.  Until I get a better grip on Conway-Stewarts both old and new, though, let’s be content with the following: In my very own hands, there’s a green shadow-wave sub-deb Vacumatic which allows a small expansion of that brimming page. The same dear friend also gave …

The Clinic Came Back

Yes, once again, just in time for a long weekend when everyone is out of town… oh, dear. Well, let’s hope not, because me and my pen-sensitive fingers will be available for free massages* at Paper Umbrella, which is found at 2724 13th Avenue in Regina, which is in Saskatchewan, which is in Canada, between …

Extruding from Another Dimension!

The first item in this entry has very little to do with pens, apart from having emerged into the world from the end of one.  A story of mine, “Free Balloons for All Good Children,” had been posted on Pseudopod, one of the great names in horror podcasting (and I’m not just saying that because …
