True about its being lost - I really surprised myself when I found mine - I haven't seen that thing for *years*.

I've been giving the "twirly" idea some thought. Certainly a different way to agitate, but it might just be useful - a sort of milder form of agitation - somewhere between inversion and stand development.

The idea is to get fresh developer to the film periodically without creating bubbles by too vigourous shaking ..."twirling" might not be bad idea.
