    I was with EK for 32 years. And, yes I hate to see them go down, especially the way it is taking place. It is now about 8 PM, and I have not had a drop!

    Well, to coffee and fruit juice count?

    Coffee and juice can be liquored up nicely so yes, they count.

    32 years...wow. Regardless of what happens to Kodak, they cant take away what you accomplished and what your efforts gave to the photographic world.

    Many deviations from this original d76formula have been proposed over the years. A recent suggestion, by Haist is to justomit hydroquinone and raise metol tohope this helps 2.5 g, creating D-76H, an environmentally friendly and more stable developer,sometimes called d76H.a simple but effective alterationby someonewho probably knows best.

    Actually D76 was published around the same time (maybe slightly after) as another Eastman Kodak fine grain film developer which bears a remarkable reemblance to Haist's suggested formula with no Hydroquinone, in fact it's most likely the one he allides to.

    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I love the analogy to a pub. The last real pub I was in was the White Hart on Drury Lane in London.
