Totally agree - NaOH, while cheap and readily available is pretty
awful stuff.
Use a silicate based developer - solution has indefinite shelf life,
it's not nearly as temperature sensitive, and has a huge margin
between developing and overdeveloping, so you can use it really strong
to develop PCBs in 10 seconds, but not ruin them if left for a couple
of minutes.  It is available from Mega and others in the UK, and there is also a
recipie to make it on my PCB making page
