    Say you come up with a nice little recipe, which is fair unique, and before you release a recipe for it, you'd like a punchy title... how would you come up with a name for it?


    I was thinking along the lines of something like:

    Athiril's Legendary Blue Thunder of the North.

    But I'm not sure..

    I think that might be one of the longer names out there!

    when reading patents, there really isn't a "name" for the recipe, so I make one based on ingredients or claims, and usually end in "fine" or "ol"

    from my chart http://www.apug.org/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=16472&d=1264753658

    "superfine" 4,363,869

    "promisol" 2,757,091
    "H&W Control" 3,772,019
    "acitol" 5,376,610

    where can I find the instructions for "thunderol"?

    I agree with David!

    Athirol or Atherol. :D

    Maybe Atherol X?

    Some others are unprintable here or unmentionable. :D :D

    One, called Urinol by others, suggests Tinkinol to me! :wink:

    Best wishes.

    So, do you actually have a recipe to go with the naming? Just curious.

    Quite a lot of suggestions to think about :smile:

    I do actually, but there are a few variations I want to try, and something I want to confirm.

    But he's in Australia, so all of his formulae will be named Bruce. But I guess it will keep things simple.

    no offense but Athol is about the worst name ..for anything
    just sound it out and tell me it otherwise
    ...can't be worse than Aciphex, though

    Legendary Blue.. sounds like a crappy amusement park water ride

    Athiril sounds pretty good but it also kind of sounds like a disease

    My new balance FINALLY arrived today, I'll be keeping this one nice and clean this time (this is my third balance, luckily they're cheap and accurate).

    Anyway, just doing a test of it now.

    An all-purpose one: Developol


    Athol is the actual name of a city in Massachusetts. The home of Starrett, makers of precision measuring equipment. So it is possible to refer to Starrett Athol.

    Initial tests look -great- for a very first test :smile: (box speed to 3 or 4 stops over-exposed, they all look basically the same to eye).

    The negs look very nice on inspection, now I just got to bleach and fix and see how it turns out later, I'll post some examples later see if theyre any good and how close to reference d* shots they are in colour.

    There are no degrees of unique. It's either unique or it isn't.

    How about Uniquol?
