Interesting indeed, thank you.

Surely nowadays the vote would have a completely different outcome, with possible Spanish on second place.
I recently saw an interview on Charlie Rose, where the panel members stated that more than 50% of all the children in the United States under the age of 6 have Spanish as their first language.
Here in Canada, where (federally) we are officially bilingual, despite the fact that large amounts of money are spent, large portions of our country provide very few services in French. I would hate to think what it would cost to mae the USA effectively bilingual.
For me - I am bilingual - I speak Black & White, and I speak Colour
If the voting accurately represented the population, Spanish might actually come in first. I'm pretty sure it would here in California.

I've already found some rolls, for more: it will just be a bit of waiting since it's very likely agfa will continue providing film after their reorganisation.

If only that were the case...

[QUOTE=Quinten]Indeed, but online stores are fine as well, I know there are some good ones, but forgot their names.
Above that there are many english users who might have a nice alternative film like apx. Ilford delta maybe? I am not sure about that though.QUOTE]
Stick with APX 100, nothing else will give you those tones, especially the Delta films (they are the Ilford answer to T-Max). Have you tried Fotoimpex in Berlin? They will send out to Netherlands. Plus they have a website www.fotoimpex.de & I think you can have it in English, but the German is pretty easy to understand.
