The Pouch for the Pyra is cool, but I will carry my Pyra the same way as my Pandora: in the same pocket as my Ebook

A pretty cool Bike, but isn’t this the right time?? Winter is coming...

Bought me two new things: a Carry Case for the Switch Lite , which didn’t arrive yet, and a new EDC Ballpoint Pen because my Old seems to become damaged by the long use..

So this is a new One of the Same Sort:
The Tonbow Air Pressure Pen, which writes even over head or underwater, and in Space..

Well, it is not 'recent' - but talking about pens that "will write in just about any condition and on almost any surface" - my favorite is FisherSpace Matte Black Bullet Space Pen with Stylus and Clip.

I am using it for years /you can see it on photos 5 & 6 in the previous post/ and it is still fun writing on the ceiling or in the pool :cool:


Here are some 'do-them-quickly-now' photos of the pen.

I know the fisher space pen, but it’s a bit more expensive than mine,
Also i already have lots of refill mines for the Tonbow Pen from the previous..
the PEN was ca 9 €..

There are now Windows on the New Pen that wherend on my Old Model,
So I can see how many ink is left:)

Aaaah :) - the myth ....

Anyway, it is not about the 'legend' behind the pen - it is just a stable, minimalistic, 'just works' kind of tool for me :cool:

And yet according to the link SAS posted, NASA did use graphite mechanical pencils on Gemini, no pencil shavings but presumbly still bits of graphite potentially floating about. The soviets used grease pencils before shifting to the fisher space pen for soyuz. I'm not sure if Gemini did more that one orbit or two of the earth, I think all of the advanced elliptic orbits for moon insertion were tested in early Apollo, but I may be wrong on that.

FWIW each of your switch case pictures above seem to be 8MB in size, and there are five of them which counts for another 40MB. Now, none of us really need to adapt for cope with elw3's stupid data plans, but if it's also affecting djoga'ro then I'd bend. I personally didn't notice because I'm not still in the 1990s.
