    I see that you too are a fountain pen fiend? What flavor does your addiction come in? Mine seems to be of the 1950s USA and German made self-fillers. :)

    Linux Mint

    Hehhe..."suggested." I've been using Opera again, since it looks not-horrible on KDE, so there were a few days of right click > block! but things are pretty clean now. As for email, I don't use Mutt for everything, but man is it good to just have text and email and text and get the...

    Linux Mint

    Right now its KDE 3.5, as a slalom back from the Fluxbox I'd been using under Wolvix.

    It isn't quite as vintage as some of my other interests, like this beautiful condition ~1940s Smith-Corona Silent I have sitting on my desk and demanding that it be used to manufacture stories, but its so...minimalist that I can't help but be attracted. I work for Paradise Pen at the moment...

    Hey there, folks. A friend of mine (whose screen name I actually don't know, now that I think of it...) has been praising this place for an age and a day, and I saw the awesome deals going on at the trading board, so I figured I should finally give in and register. I've been using a bowl...

    Getting equipped

    That first straight razor is gorgeous. As for missing spots with shaving, I'm very new to DE use, but from the couple of times I've done it so far, I couldn't even tell I was getting a shave until I was done, at which point I realized that my face was silky smooth except one patch that I...
