Everything I read about this developer seems contradictory. In one place, it says that the stuff lasts forever, but in another place it says that you have to use a giant tank to ensure having enough developer. I'm not certain how to replenish it either. One replenishment procedure has you returning most of the used developer to the original bottle with a small amount of new developer. Another has you adding quite a bit of new developer to the bottle. Talk about difficult starting points!

I tried to order it from Frugal Photographer and asked David a few questions. While he answered my questions, which lead me to think I should go ahead and try it (*), it's out of stock from his site and he didn't say when it will be in stock again. (*) The idea that I would be using a 1953 derived M, shooting (1950s) Tri X and Neopan 400, using 1938 developer, with a modern'ish Jobo Rotary processor, scanned using a Nikon LS-4000, printing on an Epson 1280 and MIS UT-2 ink just brings a smile to my face. Retro modernism instead.
