I am really tired right now, but will post something more in response to this tomorrow. I am sorry for your troubles "DKT". I hope you guys find your way out of this and are somehow still able to continue to pursue an analog avenue. I work in a custom black and white lab and we have been fairly busy lately. We deal mainly in the fine art side of things and from what I keep hearing there is a real interest in silver gelatin prints with the art collectors these days. Who knows though..........
