Thanks for that, Les, but what's unhealthy about paranoia?!

I'll add a couple more cycles to my own regime, although I live in a hard-water area and filtering sufficient water for a process run through a jug filter is a major pain! If I ever defect to the digital camp (not likely anytime soon) it'll be film processing that does for me!

Thanks again,
