    Good point. One could add a dust filter to the fan, though.

    Re: DIY high-tech film drying contraption

    Less than six hours in a room at 20 or so degrees Centigrade. A fan would make it faster, but overnight is perfectly fine with me.

    DIY high-tech film drying contraption

    I've been drying my film outside on a clothesline for years to the delight of my neighbors. It's a bit chilly out this time of the year, and I had some film to develop, so I finally got around to...

    Could you elaborate what is the "right kind" of constant agitation? Does this apply to E-6 development?
  8. Re: Anybody using Network Attached Storage / RAID Arrays for their files?

    I have 7TB+ backed up with them, and I didn't use a seed service. It took well over a year to do the initial seeding at 3mbps (CP consistently saturates my line).

  13. Re: Anybody using Network Attached Storage / RAID Arrays for their files?

    It should be said that RAID is not suitable as only backup. In my opinion you're only backed up if you have at least one off-site backup, either in a cloud (I use Crashplan) and/or HDDs at a...

    Re: Best 4x5 Developing Tank

    2521 is the one that fits six 4x5 sheets. I use it, although I'm considering getting the larger one as it takes most of the day to develop 40+ sheets six at a time (E-6).

    The 2409 reel works well,...

    Use a vacuum cleaner. Don't use the nozzle: use the tube only so that it gets stuck to the fabric. Pretty sure you'll get every last bit of sand out that way.
