Nov 16th 2010 3:04PM Montblanc makes pens that focus on the bling as much as the writing. For people wanting to try out fountain pens (the primary reasons beyond the "ritual" evoked above being less stress on the writing hand and a wider array of ink colors than are available with other writing instruments), there are many perfectly functional pens for far less than what Montblanc has to offer. At the very inexpensive end, there's the Pilot "Varsity", a disposable fountain pen available in 7 colors. That's good for people not yet ready to make the plunge into refillable pens, such as a Lamy Safari ($25) or a TWSBI Diamond ($40). Readers interested in more information should check out the forum at www.fountainpennetwork.com.

Apr 7th 2009 2:45PM I would show it to my dog.
Apr 6th 2009 3:12PM I'd show it off to my wife, who would humor me and pretend to be excited for me, when really she just doesn't GET IT. At least I can get her interested in a game of wordjong every once in a while.

I hate the volume on the DS lite. It doesn't seem to kick in until it's 25% across, and there's about 1 mm after that where the volume is reasonable. After that, it's just loud.
And of course the shoulder buttons on the DS lite are complete shite. Granted, I've gotten them repaired for free each time, but I believe I have sent in 7 different DS lites for shoulder button failure.

Dec 12th 2008 5:22PM I don't understand how this board would show when a piece has been promoted.
