Glad you like the results you're getting, that's the main thing.
But... whenever you have time or courage: staining or "pyro" developers have many advantages, particularly if you are scanning. Let me suggest wd2d+ in particular. Buy the liquid stuff, it comes in two bottles. You mix that with water and voila. Keep forever. Excellent results.
Thanks, I shall look into that. Shelf life and ease of mixing are the two biggest factors, so that sounds like something I should try. Too bad I just placed an order with Freestyle last week, or I'd order it now.
