    @johnpatkinson That’s not a bad hit rate!

      @caitlin Do you treat Google or anyone else the same way?

        @caitlin I have Ghostery, and if I want to look at a public Facebook page, I do it in a separate browser that doesn’t share cookies with my main one, but they probably still know more about me than I’d like. @neilco

          @caitlin Not very many people care. I care, but it sometimes feels as if going offline altogether is the only way to stay out of the clutches of the data-gatherers. I feel depressed and powerless about it. @neilco

            @neilco It’s lucky for Facebook that nobody cares.

              @hazardwarning I buy A4 pads of Clairefontaine, but it’s pure white, not off-white like the Rhodia notebooks. @jextxadore @dslemay @kdfrawg

                @hazardwarning I’ve more or less settled on Leuchtturm as my default. @jextxadore @dslemay @kdfrawg

                  @hazardwarning The Rhodia web ones have the best paper I’ve found, but are a bit bulky. @jextxadore @dslemay @kdfrawg

                    @hazardwarning Looks good! It seems to be bleeding a bit on that paper, but a nicely expressive line. @jextxadore @dslemay @kdfrawg

                      @jextxadore I don’t like sitting in a proper chair at a table or desk. @dslemay @hazardwarning @kdfrawg

                        @jextxadore I don’t particularly enjoy using them, though they’re a sensible choice for using lots of colours, or for a surface or ink that might clog a fountain pen. @dslemay @hazardwarning @kdfrawg

                          @jextxadore Yes, but I think I’m automatically paying more attention if I use a dip pen. @dslemay @hazardwarning @kdfrawg

                            @jextxadore I have a very flexible vintage Parker — none of my modern flex nibs is close, apart from the Pilot Custom 702, but it railroads if you’re not paying enough attention. @dslemay @hazardwarning @kdfrawg

                              @jextxadore Semi-flex, I think. Not like a very bendy dip pen — but I think very flexible pens are really for art or calligraphy, not just for writing. @dslemay @hazardwarning @kdfrawg

                                @jextxadore That’s what I have, and I think it’s what Vanessa ordered. @dslemay @hazardwarning @kdfrawg
