    Hey NetKop, did you ever stop to think that if people reply to cross-
    posts they may actually want their replies to go to all the groups?
    Just because you and the idiot, Nebenzahl, doesn't like it doesn't
    mean that nobody else does.

    If I had to vote on what makes these groups suck I'd put your (and
    David's) constant whining well above any cross-posting. You guys are
    the ones bringing the groups down, not cross-posting.

    Funny thing...
    All this cross posting to has made subscribing to it
    redundant. If you stopped Bret, there would be no traffic in that group.
    Why doncha try for a while and see if you get less or more adoration?

    for something that "was dead years ago", it's showing
    a remarkable lack of staying power.
    but then again, scammers like you wouldn't be
    able to see what's right in front of their noses,
    they'd need to run it by photoslop...

    I don't know what it's like in your corner of the world, but you can
    hardly even buy film here anymore except in dedicated camera shops,
    and even then the selection is limited. Oh, you might find a roll or
    two of cheapo Superia in the WalMart, but that's about it.

    I almost broke down and ordered some B&W film the other day, but then
    I realized that nobody in my town even develops it anymore.
    At least we do have a good place that does 2-hour development of
    slides, but his business is drying up, too. Mostly he just does
    digital printing now.

    bullshit. and what proof is that of "dead years ago"?
    bullshit. and what proof is that of "dead years ago"?

    btw, use Superia 400: it's one of the best colour
    negative films out there and scans superb! Cheap, too.

    nobody has developed b&w commercially in the last
    40 years, moron! Anyone doing b&w soups their own,
    period. Been like that for decades! Eons!

    His problem.

    All I have to do is walk 500 yards to the nearest
    shopping mall and there are three - that's 3! - places
    that will develop film on the spot as well as print
    digital or film, of course.

    As for getting film, been buying it off epay at a
    great price and good quality, just have to look for a
    reliable supplier. Gets on my doorstep 48 hours after I
    click on "buy now". That's for the "exotics".

    The run of the mill stuff like Reala, Velvia or Provia 400X,
    I get at the shop: four of them within easy walk of my
    lunchtime break. One is even a specialist in digital
    cameras who also has a brain and keeps catering for the
    film folks: they are return business, digital-heads aren't.
    They even stock Ilfosol3, a brand new developer from Ilford!
    Guess which business is rock solid while other "digital-only"
    shops are crumbling?

    Slide is dirt easy: I drop it at the guy who does
    all my 120 film and slides at lunchtime and pick it
    up next day, lunchtime as well. For your information,
    that is FASTER than I ever got it in the good days of
    film, the 80s!

    So much for all the crap theories of "film is dead"...
    Then again this being the Usenet, nothing like wild
    claims to scam some more business for digital, eh?
    Problem is no one cares about the Usenet anymore...

    Thanks for replying to him Noons, I have just picked up on what was meant.

    Has your wife told you a *LACK* of staying power is a good thing?
    Didn't think that one through too well before you hit send did you.

    What an odd statement. NO one needs "darkroom equipment"
    setup to develop a roll of b&w film.

    All you need is a tank, couple of plastic measures, change bag,
    thermometer, wrist watch, chemicals and a pair of scissors.

    Which is precisely and exactly why so few people
    ever bothered sending b&w to develop.

    and it'll cost you a lot more than doing it at home
    with the previous equipment. Assuming of course
    you're not talking about chromogenic.

    Neither is mine. I try to use a digital workflow
    where it can help me with my film photography.

    Which basically means I use film as the sensor to
    capture an image and then digitize it with a scanner.

    Much simpler than a full blown darkroom and I still have
    all the fun of film.

    Mind you: I miss a good enlarger and what can be done
    with them. But one has got to move with the times and
    scanners plus a digital workflow/storage/printing are
    without a doubt more flexible.

    Besides, I can't afford a room dedicated to photography

    But I've found a local lab that does great printing
    using traditional chemistry: will use them soon
    for some choice custom work!

    Me, too, but what do we know next to the genius, Noons?
    There used to be a few places in my town that did B&W developing.
    Then it was down to one.
    Then that guy died. Probably from inhaling all those fumes over the

    It's rather a pain to get it developed these days as you have to send it
    off in a mailer to one of the commercial processors. I remember the days
    that I could drop film off at the Kodak processing plant in Palo Alto at
    night and get it back the next morning.

    Apparently I miss a lot of real gems with Noons in the kill-file!

    apparently, genius: you missed the acknowledgment

    Here it is:
    "True enough. I wrote what I said assuming that you would at least want a

    Then again, nothing like an off-topic troll
