Clearing the Backlog

2020-03-26 1 min read Teknikal_Domain

As of the time of writing this, I’ve amassed a backlog of about 12 different posts. While I could dump them all out at once, I’m going to instead be releasing them once a day for the next few weeks, just to sort of even out the flow.

Because of how sorting works, as long as you see this in the feed, there’s more coming. Once this message is gone, we’ll be back to our irregularly-scheduled ramblings.

Refilling Fountain Pen Cartridges

Fountain pens can take a variety of different ink storage formats, including cartridges, converters, literally nothing (“eyedropper”), internal pistons, vacuums… you get the point.

Ink cartridges are supposed to be one time use, but some people that I’ve talked to are asking if it’s possible to refill them. And while it’s possible, it’s not likely to be that 100% useful.
