... It occurred to me the other day to try (mostly through mindless name "Googling") to find out more about some of the people on here who have been helpful to me over the past year as I started re-testing/calibrating my materials, people like yourself, Ian Grant, Ralph Lambrecht and Ron Mowery.
Oh, my God! Now my reputation is completely ruined. I wonder if they let me back into the US tomorrow.
I don't spend time around Zone I. Remember Ralph, I'm a Zone buster, destroyer of Zones. Well, more like attempting to replace imprecise Zone System terminology and misconceptions with sensitometry but in a heroic way in my mind...and without a cape.

do you have any data that suggests
if i over expose my film by 5+ stops how
long" it will stay overexposed" for ?
my current LF regimen is to do just that.
i have lost my film ( or misplaced it ) for 3years
processed with the rest of my film
and the negatives looked exactly the same
and its brothers and sisters that were processed
soon after they were exposed.
this film was probably 3 years expired ( shelf stored / not cold stored )
when originally exposed and its sisters+brothers 6 years expired ... ( same film )
i don't have a densitometer so my "looks about the same" has to do
with viewing the film through a bright light, and making a print ...
according to your calculations my 3 year misplaced film should have ended up
"thinner" but it wasn't ...

Stephen, you didn't answer Michael's query though. I'm curious too.
That bad eh? I hate dealing with images between computers. The files look good when I'm working on them. Upload them and they are never right. The facebook stuff looks dark to me compared to the originals, but is that just my screen? I hate the lack of control over the image.
The reference in Cookbook was to a somewhat naive article analyzing the ISO 6 standard. Kirk's reference probably concerns a radically cut down article on flare and the discrepancy between ISO and Zone System film speeds. I also did a couple of print offerings for Photo Techniques around that time.
