As far as I know, I was last to work on the room, with much thanks to
Miloh and Kelly for explaining what needs done and chipping in a bit.

As of last night the state is:

The walls and shelf are primed and painted with two coats of black.
The ceiling has drywall, and I stapled light-blocking cloth to *most*
of the ceiling, but ran into a scheduling constraint (as well as
exhausted shoulders) before finishing one last corner surrounding the
strange protrusion.  (What is that?  Ventilation?)

Oh, also we moved all of the gear out next to the room.  As Rubin
suggested, probably not the best idea to leave it sitting there very
long.

As far as I know, the next steps are to complete the cloth covering in
the remaining corner, sweep and mop, then move the gear back in.

My friend Sel explained the basics of film developing and enlarging to
me.  From what I gather the important bits for setup are to ensure the
tub is connected to plumbing, to have three or so chemical bins for
processing enlargements, to have spots to dry negatives and prints,
and to have a dim red bulb for enlarging.  Is this correct?  Probably
someone who has a clue should help arrange the equipment.  (I can work
on connecting plumbing, since that's an obvious constraint.)

I can't make it today, but I can stop by tomorrow, the 14th, after
work to do what remains, say 6pmish.


Once all is in working order, does anyone want to give me a
development/processing tutorial?


Nathan
