My Total Nerdiness

I know almost no one will be interested in this, but I bought myself a new toy today. Yes, rollerballs, gels and ballpoints are tidier. But ever since I was a boy, I've been fascinated by fountain pens. The store that sells them is almost as dangerous as a bakery or an art supply emporium.

Also, very little can surpass the feel and smell of a fountain pen on good quality paper.

Addendum: Isn't the Internet grand?

They Are Following Me

Looks very much like I picked the wrong time to migrate from Windows to Linux. Microsoft is buying Novell.

Peanuts revised

Or what if Frank Miller wrote and drew the classic comic strip?

Odd Association

Amazon recommendations usually come close to hitting the mark. Part of the fun is that they give the reason why they are recommending something. Generally it will be something along the lines of "you bought this specific printer, so here's the toner that it uses."

None of which explains this recommendation. The stated reason is because I bought these. Apparently people who like nuts also like graphics?

I have seen the future

and I really want to hide in my safe place.

It's time to watch some Top Gear now, or maybe Bullrun.
