    Not unexpected. Fred was a character. The world needs more characters and they often do useful things (Fred did) but don't take most of them literally.

    Not a church, a cult.

    If it's *that* old I'd put one on Ebay. It would be an interesting experiment to see what this item's cult value is. In dollars, not hyperbole.

    An unopened bottle of Rodinal will last a very long time. Decades. So use it! Or give it to someone that appreciates it at least. Be a shame to let it go to waste.

    Just don't drink the Kool-aid...
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Rodinal is great stuff, and it has its own particular characteristics, just like any other developer. If you test it carefully and use it consistently, you will get good results. I find it to be a very clean, low-fog developer in normal use. It is a bit touchy in that it will quickly overdevelop highlights if you don't mind your time, temperature and agitation. So will any other developer used inconsistently. Read the highlighted articles posted above. The low-fog characteristics will disappear if you use it to push a high-speed film like Tri-X to 1600, however. Normal use and gentle agitation are key.
