Living Room / Re: Cheap fountain pen shootout

Thanks all, Edvard and rjbull for the 411. Several sites have what I am looking for, or pretty close anyway.

Some of you more exotic thinking types (which in my experience is just about everyone on Donationcoder) might consider making your own pens from quills and bamboo (search that). It's something I have had some success with in drawing, thus the original post of mine to to look for manufactured pens that don't require multiple dips in an ink well.

also: around Thanksgiving in the US, turkey quills are real cheap :)

Maybe Cheap should be in quotes :) The Cult Pens site had one in the $1000's.

But seriously, I use fountain and ink pens for drawing and I'm on the lookout for a cartridge ink pen that allows different "nibs".  Any ideas?  Thanks.

Hopefully some of the posters here can lead me in the right direction.
As a volunteer, I am putting together some instruction "tutorials" for users with various disabilities.
One of the things I would like to try as an approach is, instead of keyboard shortcuts where a "control " or "command" key needs to be selected along with another key, having the shortcut as a single click icon, maybe in some kind of on-screen toolbar.
As an example, in Photoshop, in order to "deselect" one must 1.)click the toolbar. 2.) scroll down, and 3.) click "deselect", or, a two key combination (as you probably know there are many and often difficult to look up, remember or execute).
Could this (and any selection or keyboard shortcut) be done with a simple single click on a descriptive "icon"?
Skrommel (Mr. Skrommel maybe) had a AHK utility a number of years ago that got close to this effort, however OS's have changed and a very short learning curve is necessary.
Any info about utilities, on-screen programmable icons, or methods that would help develop and hence simplify (especially "art" software which is popular) is appreciated.  Thank you,
Washington DC

Still the most imaginative site on the "inter-web".

About CHS, can you direct me to how to reorder the grid?  Thanks
