Day 68: MarkersPosted: December 13, 2012
(Warning: Slightly trivial post!) This year we started using Auspen refillable whiteboard markers. They have been great…except that for the last month or so they seem to dry up almost instantly. I have been messing with them off and on when I felt I had time, and I concluded last week that they had gotten dry enough that when we refilled it wasn’t really re-saturating. So I tried adding much more ink than normal, but they still seemed to run out quickly.
Today I pulled the insert out of one that I thought I had saturated (I put at least twice the recommended 20 drops in), and found that there was a very clear gradient such that the bottom was not even close to saturated (hopefully you can actually see that in the picture). So I really saturated it this time, we’ll see if that works.
