    This is very good advice. I have only developed by inspection about twice for the experience of doing so and can't think of a situation where I would need to do this again.

    I would like to add that in order to use this method the eye must be fully adapted to the dark. For the average individual this is about 30 min of sitting in the dark before one can start. This can be incredibly boring. Some good music helps but still I would prefer to be doing something else.

    Ever try this method when cooking?
