    Today is literally the one year anniversary since I mixed up my 5L batch of Xtol. Developed a couple of rolls of 120 in it just last week. Works fine!

    I kept it in four 40oz. brown glass beer bottles with metal caps. Drinking the beer was half the fun!

    I suspect Kodak wont put their name to a crude home test just like a doctor wont tell you its OK to diagnose yourself off the internet (though I have on several occasions found the internet more reliable)

    If 20cc of dev causes a film leader to blacken quickly, the developer is working just fine and 400cc is not going to have any trouble developing your roll of film...

    The only kind of "XTOL failure" I know of is the kind in which one is too lazy to shoot through a batch of it within six months. If you failed to shoot through a batch within six months, then you are officially considered an "XTOL failure!"

    The difference between a good and a bad restaurant in Italy...

    In a good restaurant the waitor will ask you after the meal: "Fish was good, sir?"
    In a bad restaurant he will ask: "Fish was still good, sir?"

    Food packages have a "best before" stamp, often with a note about storage ("put in the fridge, dude"). It is vital to follow these instructions, because a "sudden death" can be very unpleasant...

    Well, when you get the urge to do something you know you shouldn't, like make another post to this thread, just remember those famous words of Nancy Reagan, "Just say no".

    For up from the ashes, up from the ashes, grow the roses of success!
