Comment Re:Dip Pens Require(d) Cursive (Score 1) 613

If you're willing to spend a little more money and effort, you can get a used Parker 51 on ebay for less than $50. It's by far the best pen I've ever used and has lasted me five years so far. Parker Vectors ($10) are a good way to see if you like fountain pens, I think.

Submission + - Can we find a man with just a photo and a name?

MikeJ writes: "Mind Candy, the makers of Perplex City, are testing the power of the Internet by asking that very question; they have recruited one of Earth's 6 billion residents — a man named Satoshi — to participate in this experiment.

It has been suggested that we are each only five to seven people away from any target in the world. Someone, somewhere, knows Satoshi — so we must track these people, and thus Satoshi, down using word-of-mouth communication. People from over 80 countries are already participating in the hunt, with more joining every day. Can you help find Satoshi?"

Our informal mission is to improve the love life of operators worldwide. -- Peter Behrendt, president of Exabyte
