My problem with those special orders is simply their "special here and now" nature. I am currently in a position where I have to turn over every penny twice; so putting in a huge order for a full year's or two supply is above my possibilities, especially at the end of the S L O W winter season; can't kill a dead piggy bank twice. I guess, both we the consumers and Ilford are stuck between a rock and a hard place - for one it has to make economical sense to do a production run, but the small core consumer base is evidently putting a damper on things as our Dollars are evidently limited.
