to all that are interested.

Nice site, Rick.

Have you tried generating film directly by installing a Linotronic or
whatever (I use a "whatever", Scantext) driver in your computer and creating
a print file? Cost isn't much different and you skip the problems with
anisotropic scaling that some laser printers have. Transporting the file
used to be an issue if you didn't have a Zip drive, but these days it's
easy to burn a CD or FTP the file to your local SB.

Thanks for the kind words. Haven't tried that yet but what I have done is FTP'd
the .prn file or Lino file directly to the print shop and they will burn a
negative from that. What I didn't mention on the web page is that the local
newspaper went all digital and "gave" me there $25,000 floor camera. All
computerized timing and the works. It's twice the size of a washing machine, has
a vacuum frame to suck the litho into place and will zoom into 0.5:1 to 4:1. It's
sitting in my garage right now and waiting for a rainy day for me to set it up. I
used it a few times and it's fatastic. Only problem is that if I don't do a lot
of shooting with it, the chemicals expire in a short time. Still, I can pump out
a positive, shoot it and develop it all within an hour and have my timeless
negative. They also gave me a roll of litho film to last a lifetime too. I'll
post a picture of it as soon as I get it out and make a permanent home for it.
