I remember reading something about it back when I was reading threads on Buffaloe's forum, saying that the ones that have three dots on the dark slide are unsafe and the ones that have five are safe, or the other way around...

I still have to find something creative to do with the 100 sheets of HIE I still have in the freezer... (don't ask me to give them to you, that's not creative !)
That's not an urban legend. 5 dots are safe.

You might try exposing the film in your camera. How is that for a creative idea?
