Yeah it's a great little program. Just turned my dad onto it yesterday. I actually have not found a great use for it on my smartphone yet. Maybe I'm being myopic. What are you using it for?

On my phone, I've found it helpful for the few times I've suddenly needed access to a particular file. Also, I use it as a ghetto iTunes to sync parts of my music library to my phone (over wifi, of course).

Mainly photos. Last night, heading up to basically chat with the somm and bartender, I loaded up some interesting wine pics. Tonight, I'm headed out to a place where chef the is into homemade charcuterie also, so I'm loading up a few pics I know he'll be interested in.

Still looking for a good, all in one, media player.

I have journals from all over the world. I love'm. I pick them up wherever I go. The most recent one I got is by A. G. Spalding & Bros. that I picked up in Italy. It is sort of a Moleskine x 3.... just a little better all around but looks simple and is black. A G Spalding is a cool line of stationery and bags. Too bad it isn't sold in the US. (except a few items on Yoox but never their stationery).

One of my all time favorite journals is a set of bound back journals with different colored fabric spines in a black case. The interiors are lined ivory paper and the edges are colored purple. It was designed by Giuliano Mazzuoli after being inspired by his grandfathers old accounting journals that he found in the family business. Giuliano went on to design a famous line of machined aluminum pens and now focuses entirely on watches.

It's really hard to beat a good journal and a Meisterstuck.

^^^^^ I'll take that back. It's really hard to beat a good journal and a nice Aurora FP.

Moleskin is a great way to go. I would recommend getting a nice pen (I like ACME pens) as a signature piece. Makes writing more of an experience.

Moleskines suck for writing with fountain pens. Paper too thin. Rhodia and Clairfontaine are usually held up to be superior.

Also welcome to the insanity that is online discussion on fountain pens, journaling etc. You thought Styleforum was bad, haha, you ain't seen nuthin' yet. You can learn everything you want (and get severe OCD) over at fountainpennetwork.com.

Be careful about the Moleskine blogs/pages, some of them are really scary...

My ideal journal is 12" x 9" with a 100 square per inch graph in a very faint blue line weight, containing 65 lb. acid free paper with micro perforated inside edges for easily tearability, and a soft black cover with internal pocket. Make it happen, free market.
