Sorry. I guess I should have made it clear where I live. I'm in rural
North Carolina, and far from any brick and mortar source of film and
developer. Pony express is my only option. I'm looking for the best
supplier with whom I can place a film order via the telegraph :-) 

I'm also looking at film options. I plan to buy several bricks of two
films, rather than a roll or two various types. One 25-100 ASA which had
good tonality and acutance. A second 800-up, fast with good grain

I've used TMX/TMY/TMZ in the past, but its sensitive to development.
Great when you get it right, but not too forgiving. I had excellent
temperature control in my old darkroom. Not so now. I need something
that's more forgiving. Plus I bought PMK because all my other developers
(except for some Rodinal) have gone bad. So I need film that develops
well in PMK.
