So long?  Just think of Dr. Ted and some others on this list (like me).    

I don't have access to a darkroom right now, but in the freezer I do have 
700' of APX 25 and 200' of Kodak Direct Positive Pan Film, which is 
basically Panatomic-X under a different label.
And a bottle of Rodinal.  I never could stand Tmax films, mainly because you 
couldn't develop them by inspection, which is how I did all my processing.
