So, IMHO, none of the internet formulas are correct so far. If I can find one, I'll post it here someday.

Qualitywise, this developer is very good and works superbly with Fuji CAII paper and Endura paper. Its only downside as I mentioned earlier is tar (I get a stain in my trays), and short shelf life. I have seen the formula by Steven Keirstead, which no doubt solves these problems, but in my opinion is too complex and probably is not worth the trouble for the typical home user, considering the image quality of this developer.
