Never knew Sweden was in the Midwest...

Yeah, I should stop bitchin and get on with it. You're right in a way. It was more of a reflection than anything...

I appreciate the advice. Regarding dusty negs, for some reason the negatives I have processed with Xtol don't have much dust on them, if any. They are squeaky clean. One or two spots in a 10" square print to spot, and that's it. Negs processed with Rodinal or HC-110 (don't use those anymore) have little armies of dust attached to them. It's very strange...

Onward!
