A total loss, really!

I was using Dektol 1:3 during the session. I've tried the trick of adding restrainer to developers to salvage a fogged paper (used it with out-of-date Multigrade which, as a developer-incorporated paper, doesn't have marvelous shelf life) before. And it worked for me.

I do intend to give Slavich another shot when my Forte supplies are exhausted. Bad paper happens.
