If you diluted the HC110 with either high pH water or hot water (or both), that could give your working developer a significant activity boost.
Working solution was mixed at 70 deg.
My litmus paper is probably 10 years old and my garden/potting soil ph tester only works in soil. I have no idea what the ph is, but I do know the city decided to add floride. I've had other negs that didn't do this, so I'm guessing I just had a bad day. Could've been the agitation too. The image was a flat bed scan of the negative. But, I looked at the neg with a loop, and it's still bad. It's not that great of an image to fret about. I just wondered so I wouldn't do it again on something good (good neg).

Thanks for all your suggestions/comments.
