    So,

    I was developing some films lats night, and while washing film from a fixer I thought: good thing is that I don't believe in homeopathy :O :D

    "Washing" film "in" (is that what you wished to impart?) fixer is not so bad as long as you stop and then wash in water. Over fixing will not be a problem unless you grossly overfix (ie, overnight). Doing that might slightly reduce the image and remove some shadow detail. - David lyga

    Dear Darko,

    Hilarious! Of course you probably haven't had the training required to perform the "succusion" (shaking) properly. ;>)
