I tried stand developing just for the fun of it. Following the instructions is clearly the best way to go, if one wants good results. Being new with film processing, I think I can learn a few thing by not following the instructions, since by making things wrong, I at least know what not to do. I will try do lower the concentration of the chemicals in the working solution, in order to decrease the development of the film.
The temperatures on the developer was 30 deg C.
Thanks zsas for the links, interesting reading I must say. I'll try your method ad 38 deg C with added washing.
The next step is probably to turn the computer off, and go outside with my camera...
