More than one got in without proving anything other than age.The only constitutional requirements are age 35 and be natural born citizen.

I get totally disgusted at the speeches some give and they clearly have no understanding of economics or needs of the people. Their only purpose is to stay in office.

And his opponent could not run the country and has history to prove it.

To be in congress, you need to need be 35 or 30, that`s all. And that is all some of them have, age.

I can make D76 and it works perfectly, around $1 a liter. Turns amber when it goes bad.

Why do I need to make a whole gallon just to develop a few rolls?

I use D76 and D23 and prefer either of them to Xtol.

For users of EK 222, the formulas for D76 and D96 are very close. There are slightly higher amounts of each chemical in D96 as opposed to the amounts in D76 and the addition of a small amount of Potassium Bromide.

I suspect that D96 is recommended for cinema b&w film because it is a little more potent and will last for at least 100 feet of film (a standard length on a reel) before needing replenishment. Beyond that I would doubt that users of EK 5222 will see much difference between the two in real life developing.
