Man this forum makes me crazy.. I love fountain pens. Don't own many (really only own cheap stuff) but I love fountain pens. Love 'cross' pens/pencils too.
I realized a while ago that I am a collector, I can never just have one.
you name it and I've probably tried to collect it at some point.
I always need the new stuff but can't get myself to sell the old stuff.
I have laptops from 1992 (IBM Thinkpad 700) that I power on every once and a while. Nothing like having a 128mb hard drive that only works in ms-dos.
All this collecting sure is expensive!
