    You know how they say invert the dev tank 5 times every 30 seconds?

    This is revolutionary. Couldn't help but notice your name, as well. ezwriter. The untrained eye may not recognize the clever phonetic parallelism with Easy Rider, but mine is not an untrained eye. It's apparent that the mansion of your brilliance has many rooms.

    ... seriously ... I laughed. Very funny

    Or maybe it would go:

    Q: Why not agitate more intensely for the 5 inversions?

    A: These (tanks) go to 6!

    If you follow Ilford's recommendations regarding agitation, you could really hit the Spinal Tap vortex, because with 10s every 60s, you could easily go to 11 without overdoing it. Much.

    It's all because we have five fingers on each hand. Two-fingered creatures would do 100 inversions per 1000000 seconds. Almost the same thing.

    try doing the randomized inversion ...
    some every few seconds,
    some rolling on the sink floor,
    some shaken like a citric mixed drink
    some just a big slam do dislodge the bubbles
    some leave and don't do anything ...

    it works, but only mostly sometimes

    I have a paint mixer (a la Home Depot). I just put my developing tank in that. It cuts the developing time in half. If you are going to do this though make sure your tank doesn't leak.

    I feel like quoting a This Is Spinal Tap Reference when they're talking about the amps.

    OR...

    6? I said 7, 7 is the magic number....
