    And I am so priveledged to know that NobleBeast here throws a leg over the VERY SAME bicycle frame I used to ride. It kind of gives me a star-struck feeling all over again.

    Oh! Remind me to tell you about the time I invented the bicycle. The story kept Lance Armstrong enthralled the entire time I was teaching him how to win stage races (of course the real secret to his success is merely the knowledge that I believe in him, such is the power of MY positive thinking).

    I was there when God created Man. As he was working on the spine I said, "Not a good design. You know eventually that thing's going to want to stand on two legs and walk." He laughed out loud, then went on to add wisdom teeth. God, he was a mean drunk.

    Dear No Bull Beast,

    Welcome! Man, have I been waiting for you to show up! I've been getting heavy fb+f with Rodinal 1:100 stand development and APX 400, and my tap water has so much calcium in it that it leaves deposits on my film. Since you must know everything about this problem, please give me the correct amount of sodium ascorbate and borax to add to bring down the fb+f and times, temps, and dilutions for gammas of .50, .55, .60, and .65.

    Although you didn't mention it, you have extensive and exhaustive knowledge of darkroom work, right? Turns out the last guy full of promises hadn't even processed a roll yet. I've only been using high dilution Rodinal + additives myself for 30 years (starting with info provided by someone who'd been doing it for 30 years before I started), so I'm sure you know better than I what to do.

    Lee

    Lee L, the answer is simple: move somewhere with less calcium in the water! Why should I waste my intellectual faculties on such mundane queries. Yet I do, for such is my largesse and my good heart. Rodinal! I rue the day I ever came up with that chemical formula!

    Geez! Why didn't I think of that? It's so simple and elegant. I should have taken advantage of your wisdom 16 years ago, before I moved. But I was young (35) and so unbelievably full of myself that I probably wouldn't have listened to your sage advice.

    Ah HA! I knew it! True GENIUS!!!

    For those who haven't read "Surf Zombies and Other Horrors", you can never fully appreciate the intellect of our own Noble Beast!

    Hint: get the book...

    ...and to think, you were here for over 200 posts and we did not recognize your greatness.

    Please forgive us, Oh Noble One. We have committed sins against thee in our ignorance!
