    I think monochromephotography.com is reselling his chemicals.

    I'm a little upset to see that his articles have been removed and his website is now something about "Christmas Hampers" When I think of a "hamper" I think of dirty clothes. What a hamper has to do with Christmas I don't know, but it smells of old, unwashed socks to me.

    His article on the "nozone" system was just great. If anyone knows where it can be found on the web now, please point it out.

    Thanks,

    Will

    That explains alot. I was looking for the articles. I knew I should have printed them out.

    I would like an opinion on his film devopers. I have his Edge book and his propaganda for diXactol makes it sound like the Gauls' magic potion. Is it -that- good?

    From what I've read on the 'Net, diXactol has not performed up to expectations. Pyrocat-HD would probably be a better choice - the fact that the forumula is published also makes it more attractive.

    Hamper - an open basket of food, as in a gift basket. Also a basket used for picnics.
