    I get away with filling most of the freezer because it's at work, and we don't need the freezer for much at work. Maybe some ice for iced coffee or Jim Beam once in a while and some BBQ leftovers. Keeping the freezer and fridge full is more efficient than empty.

    But also importantly he is a likable character...

    Sorry -- that is what I meant. I thought something seemed off with my reply, but I was pretty wiped out last night (as in tired).

    Tri-X less forgiving in exposure than TMax, but more forgiving in development.
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    You are a person of many many opinions. Thanks for the disclaimer.

    There's no way to know for sure looking from the outside in but I suspect that Ilford wants to see Kodak survive much in the way Ford wants GM to survive. If one goes down many suppliers likely go too and the whole industry goes into shock. I don't wish to think about it really.

    Exactly!

    For every job that was lost in Detroit during the last recession, ten jobs were lost at those companies that supplied all of the manufacturers with parts. It has a magnified ripple effect.

    borax is cheap if Ansell used it... we can too

    This kinda blew my mind. I've got so much to learn - which I find appealing rather than daunting. I've thought about taking a photography course at the local uni, but then I wonder if my time and money would be better served continuing as I have been. Basically giving myself "assignments" and studying what interests me. The library and the internet have gotten me this far...

    The library is good just looking at Ansells photos gives us all a goal to aim at.

    Adding a Borax bath after any developer will help any inadvertent underexposure.

    But I think the story about one of the other self taught female photographers was when a photographer asked how she got the grain in her photos, the answer I drop the film off at the local shop.

    So don't get worried about details if it works.

    You are right to be worried about trix, however eg Ilford and Forma produce acceptable alternatives. But you don't need to jump into the lifeboat on the Titanic unless she bumps into a berg.
