    Wouldn't hurt to develop that habit in the darkroom.
    Wow, I thought they just memory problems........makes sense.

    Most hospitals have a rule. The caregiver has to read the medication order, the patient's wristband and the container the meds come in. All three have to match, exactly, before giving anything to the patient, even if they've given the patient the same thing 100 times.

    Maybe that would be overkill for us but I still try to make sure I read the label before I pour anything.

    Haven't made a mistake yet... At least not that I would admit.

    One further version of the wrong chemical at the wrong time mistake:

    Pre-wet rinse - stop bath/rinse - fixer.

    Gives the same high quality result as the fixer - developer - stop bath approach

    That certainly would have prevented my need to mix up a new batch of D76. Instead of replenisher, I added a carefully measured dose of fixer to the jug.

    I did that once--not that many years ago.

    Funny you should mention hospitals. If the OP did confuse 68 degrees fahrenheit with 68 degrees centigrade as Bill Burk suggested then maybe that's where he is with some very red skin

    Sorry OP, not wishing to be cruel and I am sure this hasn't happened or you'd have known about it instantly but I couldn't resist the comment

    Wouldn't it be nice if you could do that? One-step developing!

    Are you sure there's nothing there? Delta 3200 isn't really that fast, so metering it as such often means underexposed negatives that are incredibly thin, especially if you're shooting in low light.

    Do some searches on monobaths - you might be surprised.
