I have a question that I hope will not stir up a storm. I am not trolling.
Ron, you said that Kodak makes all it's own film base and if they stop making film, the other base suppliers will benefit from the increased demand from other film manufacturers. But in the recent controversies, one of Aristophanes's main points was that Kodak buys base from other manufacturers, and if Kodak goes under then the base suppliers may also go under and this will threaten the supply for Ilford, Efke, Foma, etc.
I don't remember you pointing this out at the time (I bailed out of those threads). Would you elaborate on this?
