    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.

    Is this true about borax and under exposure? Does this JUST bring up the shadows? Or could it potentially blow highlights too?

    But Tom, Eeyore is so beguiling .

    Whenever I read a fractious APUG thread I'm likely to think that a lot of people here need to read some of Winnie the Pooh.

    Or alternatively, "The Tao of Pooh": http://www.goodreads.com/work/quotes...he-tao-of-pooh

    Haha Tom! How can you not know AA Milne! (Winnie the Pooh author)

    And who doesn't know Eeyore? Lol

    Anyway this is a beloved character, basically all characters in this series have a personality trait, it subconsciously teaches kids about accepting different types of people while making every character lovable.

    I never learned about winnie the pooh. We had Sally, Dick, and Jane in school and then we moved on to regular books. WP wasn't popular around here that I ever heard about till at least the late 60's I suppose.

    it would stink if film stocks we all love went away
    but we would somehow deal
    and it would be a drag if K went down for the dirtnap

    i don't want to think about it either.

    To me, it's just half a cup. Never consider it one way or the other. I go around with a mortgage over my head and ink-stained hands to pay it

    Matt, I think only us Western Canadians know the answer to that question...

    As far as Tri-X availability, I don't think users have much to worry about. I'm sure it'll be around for a long time.
