    I like the photo! But things have sure changed in the last 13 years!

    Sorry, just joking!

    Did EK make you guys wear suits in the Research Lab? Do you have silver nitrate burns in your suit like your lab coat?

    Kirk;

    Yes, things change! I wore a suit because I had a lot of people doing things for me, but I had whites and a locker and a lab coat at EK and I did work in the lab and I did do my own work. I've destroyed several lab coats and shirts at work and at home.

    I made melts for my coatings and made a lot of copper emulsions and coatings with polymers, and made dye bleach coatings. So, I have had my share of lab work. I used to bring work home in terms of paper to process or solutions to test out. I tested some Ektacolor 37 that I coated on J9 at EK in 8x10 and 11x14. I had the first chemical mixes here.

    But, that is gone. Now I work for myself and worry my hair gray. And now I am losing it (the hair, not anything else).

    So, to end this ramble, Kirk, you look quite different than some of the photos on your web site. Things do indeed change. Like hair!

    have you tried the emulsion as it is to see if it works? Before you start over from scratch you might as well give it a shot, really what have you got to louse?

    I have a standard test of every emulsion in which it is coated on a standard paper, given a standard exposure and then processed in a standard developer. That way, I can tell how it compares with my expectations and with previous emulsions. This one looked to be about ISO 25 (raw with no sensitization) and very foggy, grainy and low in contrast.

    Hehe - my photo on my website is over 25 years old! I'm both fatter and balder now! At least my hair was falling out faster than the grey was coming in so it never got grey. So far, that is...

    Well, I had hoped for a degree of seriousness in this thread, but it is turning into a thread about my hair and Kirk's hair.

    Ray, someday, it may be your hair that is being commented on! Or your mustache.

    Fotch, I like the new avatar. Lets talk about your mustache! You look like one of the guys on our project. Dave had a mustache just like yours.

    PE, your new avatar inspired me to have a more serious image.
