    I went to pick up 2 rolls of Portra 800. They didn't have it. They did have a big bag of unboxed Kodachrome, mostly 25. It was $3 a roll. So I spent $180 (that I really shouldn't have) and bought it all. On top of the money I just spent on HIE, I think I might be hungry this month :smile:

    Throw the 25 on E Bay and you'll more than make your money back. I've seen it going for 10X what you paid.

    Why? If someone is willing to pay the price, why should you feel badly about taking the money? It's not like you're forcing anyone to do something against their will.

    At $3 per roll, you shouldn't feel bad at all. However, if you want to assuage some of your guilt, you may send me some of those rolls of Kodachrome. :wink:
