    Cold weather developer thoughts

    I asked a question a while back about cold temperature developers. It's cold again and I did a search, and whatta ya know, a New York Times article form the 1890's, when para-amidophenol (sic) was too new to comment on in this regard:

    Some interesting comparisons anyway, that run the gamut of the day (and today)

    Interesting article. Worth reading if for no other reason than "It's English but not quite as we know it, Jim". The style of writing has changed much more than I had imagined. More gracious and polite, reflecting a society that wasn't "in your face" the way we are today.

    Very interesting, I've never thought of looking in the NY Times for a developer formula.

    Thanks for posting the link, Murray.

    Just as an aside, Diafine works very well in low temperatures.
