Well that WORKED! Developed 15 minutes (i.e. 50% over) in D76 1+1.
Unfortunately I tempted fate (or overestimated my skills) and developed all
4 sheets in the sheet over sheet tray method and -- yep -- scratched 2.


From Wikipedia:

<< Ars longa, vita brevis, occasio praeceps, experimentum periculosum,
iudicium difficile.

This is often rendered in English as
 Life is short, [the] art long, opportunity fleeting, experiment
treacherous, judgment difficult.

Hippocrates>>


  I used to be able to do this OK with 4x5 -- and bare hands, it's not so
easy with gloves, but I would like to keep my fingers a little longer. Back
tomorrow to try again, and then develop one at a time.
