Now I'm referencing it, Richard:)

In the blog you say:

However, he still uses it like in the film days: his assistant makes  
contact sheets for him, and his camera is modified to give the same  
645 ratio he is used to. He also has the images processed to look like  
Tri-X. For prints, a lab  converts the data into a 645 negative and  
prints using traditional darkroom process!

Did he say how he has the digital files processed to look like Tri-X?  
Is is assistant using a certain software program? I know there are a  
number of programs out there for this; I'm wondering which one or what  
process replicates Tri-X accurately enough to his liking.
