    attention film developing pros i need basic help

    so i have like 30 rolls of film and several sheets of film to develop.i have decided to give 777 a try.what i need info on is the basics.it has been several years since my last developing session,sooooo i need to know what to do after the developer is poured out.here is what i remember.
    pre rinse film then add correct amount and temp of developer,agitate appropriately for developing time.
    dump out developer....now i forget the sequence after this part.

    1. presoak
    2. dev
    3. stop
    4. fix
    5. rinse (I let the film rinse for a few minutes while I do some cleaning up or rinsing of tanks, etc..this is what I've always done, not saying that it is an absolute necessity)
    6. HCA (hypo clearing agent to aid in removal of fixer and shorten the total wash time)
    7. final wash (5 to 10 min)
    8. wetting agent
    9. hang to dry
