    The photos don't show up for me. I'm using the latest Firefox on Windows 10.

    I see them. Maybe you have a security setting on Firefox that needs adjusting?

    It's a blingy pen that's for sure.

    Yes, the security settings on the default Firefox browser won't load the image. So I think there will be a lot of people who won't be able to see the image without relaxing the security settings, something that a lot of people including myself, won't do just for the sake of being able to see an image.

    For the OP, your SSL certificate for your domain is not setup properly:

    Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN

    That's why Firefox won't show the image. You may want to look into that.

    Jon, it has to do with the SSL certificate of the domain where the image is coming from. I've given the info up there so if the OP wants to do something about it, he can.

    Here's where I'm coming from: Part of my work in real life is producing online software. If even some of my clients can't see what I'm putting out there, I don't have the luxury to expect them to tweak their browsers, so I had to to what I can on my end to make things visible. And in this case it is something that the OP can and should take care of.

    Well, I can see it, but I'm none the wiser. Words are apparently very necessary for this poor weevil. Looks kinda Chinese to me.

    I can see them across various operating systems and browsers including Firefox on standard security settings.. Might be a Winblows problem. None of my machines are infected with Winblows operating system. I called the images via http not https so SSL should be irrelevant.

    It's funny to see your condescending attitude towards Windows, in my line of work, I have to use and support all operating systems, so I am not infected by bias towards any specific one, none of them is perfect anyway.

    Ah, blingy pen indeed. I wonder how it writes.

    I wonder if holding that section would make an imprint on the fingers or thumb?

    I ordered an extra fine and it writes beautifully. The section doesn't really leave imprints, but it is a bit slippery being polished metal, even with the groves cut in.

    A long time ago my best friend bought a Stipula FP with a metal section. She found it so slippery to write with that she had to wrap a rubber band around the grip.
    At that time, I vowed to never buy FP's with metal sections....

    Not all metal behaves the same. There is a reason Sterling silver is the material of choice for silverware and a big part of that is that it does not get slippery when wet.

    Moreover, silver elicits an olygodynamic effect when wet, e.g. you can wash them with plain water and they will self sanitize.

    I have just learnt a new word. Olygodynamic isn't in my Shorter Oxford Dictionary (Third Edition 1970). I am impressed.
    Seriously blingy pen, by the way.

    I suppose it's the modern equivalent of the gold plated or solid gold Swans of the twenties and thirties, but where they appeal to me, this doesn't.

    I don't like them, either. Somebody at a pen show suggested using washi tape on metal section, which did seem a good idea, though I have not tried it.
