    Any chance of getting a copy of your templates?
    If they won't go on the forum, I can post them on my web server so others can also get them.
    Don't do winblows, but will give it a go on Linux and can help the non-tech Linux and Mac users to install GStar.

    Certainly - if you drop me a PM with your email I'll send them on. Linux installation is a breeze (of course) and the same goes for Windows surprisingly enough, but I don't think there's a non-tech way to get this onto a Mac, unfortunately.

    I have All my pens and stuff on JonRo's program for years, BUT I am currently working on Benito with my iPad to load that up as I use my IPad quite a bit!

    Brilliant idea. I keep track of all of my incoming and outgoing letters in Evernote (Divided by individual into folders.) I don't know why this never occurred to me to do the same thing. I keep a list of pens on my blog site, and each links off to the review page for that pen, but something like this would be great for tracking original purchase prices, particular parts numbers or specs along with the photos. I'm totally going to steal that and start working on my database tonight!

    I love me some Evernote. Been a premium user for about 2 years. Use it for so many things which is funny considering it is to help you sort of remain paperless but I love using fountain pens so much,lol. I have the database I downloaded a while back from FPN and just recently started using it. I also keep an list of which pens are inked and with what. I keep that on Evernote in case I ever forget while out and about with my daily carry's.

    Ok I need to drag out this old thread. During years I have been using the FP Inventory database I downloaded from FPN to keep track of my pens. I just bought a new Mac that runs Mojave 10.14.6 and the DB just quit on me. The screenshot shows this dialog:

    Screen Shot 2019-10-05 at 4.44.56 PM.png

    So who has an alternative app for a FP inventory database on a Mac?


    PS. If you're wondering why I still have the older Yosemite screen it's because I find the Mojave screen unappealing. And it also makes me thirsty!

    It can't get any worse. With Mac OS 10.14.4 there would simply be a pop-up warning that the FP Inventory app was not compatible... but it still worked. Now with this last update (10.14.6) it will not open.... and all my pen info is on that app!

    Hmmm just found this recently dragged-up thread.... A short while back, i made a mySQL database for my personal use, but I think it may have broad applicability for others as well. As I've got it setup now, I can keep track of my inks, pens including buy and sales prices, ink usage, discount codes, and my pen wishlist. I'm willing to share it, make a video or screenshots demonstrating it, if there's interest.
