    Big day here in hottern hell. First film developed today after I plugged up some light leaks. Bought ice to cool the water down but did not have to use too much of it. I just moved my development times up to 75 and I was able to do that very quickly. PMK and Arista 400 shot at 200 and it looks pretty good. Tomorrow I am gonna try printing on of them. I am jazzed.

    lol, aggie! And Lee I'm glad to see everything's coming together. I got the message about the fixed plumbing, did you get the drainage of that sink fixed? After the last couple of days I bet you're REALLY GLAD you have that air conditioning unit in there.

    I'll PM you later this week to see where you'll be this weekend and I can drop off that CD.

    HI Jeremy,
    WRT the plumbing, we rerouted it. I cut open the wall and removed the pipe. We cut yet another hole in the wall this time to the outside and put a "T" on the vent pipe. We stuck a piece of pipe with an Lbow on it and then connected it to a 10 foot piece. That pipe ran down the outside of the building and into the cleanout for a toilet we are not using. This was accomplished with a rubber boot connection. It also allowed us to fit another rubber piece in the line so we would still have use of the cleanout. We then redid the plumbing under the sink after we moved that green sink back into place. Viola, we now drain like a big dog. It even looks better under there too.

    wrt, to where I will be...Try the darkroom! :smile:

    All,
    Spent about 3 hours tonight in the new darkroom printing. Had to Jerry rig the electricity as that is not finished yet but I wanted to do something tonight. Prints are soaking overnight in the Zone VI washer. So far, so good. Made contact prints under the enlarger very nice.
