In "Curious, George: Any Monkeys still use a darkroom?"

There are three (main) types of film processing, traditional silver-halide black and white (negative), C-41 (color negative), and E6 (color slide) types of processing. APS film, as far as I know, is always C-41. You cannot process C-41 (color process) film in most darkrooms. When I hear darkroom I think black and white silver halide films. As far as I know none of these traditional B&W films are sold for APS so your camera might be incompatible with the darkoom. What kind of dark room do you have access to? APS is a really terrible format (soo small). If you're already willing to spend a bunch of money on film (and APS film is $$) I'd recommend either sinking some of that money into an old SLR or all of it into a digital (if you want something small and compact). I'd recommend getting a vintage SLR and learning how to use it. Maybe a canon AE-1 or a Pentax Super-program with a 50mm f2 lens or something. A flash too if you want it. You can get good kits cheaply on ebay. It'll take a few hours to figure it out but after that you'll take much better pictures. As far as film goes, I'd shoot a bunch of Ilford XP2 (C-41 black and white), and send it off to to process and scan. For something like $8 I believe. Printing is fun, but it takes ages to process and print your own film. And the paper is hardly cheap either.

In "Curious, George: What do you wear to a rave?"

Choosing clothes in high school / middle school requires a very complex equation with many many inputs. Probably why so many of us look back on those times and wonder the whole class looked so dorky.

In "Open Source Web Design"

These appear to cost money. As far as being open source is concerned, it's kind of impossible to build a closed source website unless you do HTML obfuscation; which would limit customizability and render the sites near useless to customers.

Nope, IMDB's worked fine for me for years. Have you tried reinstalling?

Hmmmm, i'm under 21, but I'd love to meet you guys. If someone could give me a call for any post/pre-bar monkey activities I'd be much obliged. I'd rather not post my phone # here, but just AIM me: purinapremium if that's possible.
