Well, Loris, it's kind of strange how that worked out.  I was loading
a new roll of paper on the printer and it was much thinner than the
18LB I had used before.  It turns out that I had been using 24LB that
was mis-labeled.  My exposure times are much shorter now.  And
contrary to what I've been told about the NuArc, it is MUCH faster
than my fluorescent bulbs.

The non-oiled 18LB is much more splotchy and grainy than the oiled
24LB.  I tried using it for cyanotype and the results were horrible.
But it is very nice not having to deal with those oily negatives.
