Sure, as long as you don't mind tons (I guess "tonnes" to you) of grain.

The Bush administration should restrain itself from its imperial arrogance
that has so alienated countries around the world. Their contempt for the
United Nations in the dash to war with Iraq; their support of the coup in
Venezuela in April 2002, and the continuing hostility toward President
Chavez; the pressure on nations of the world to exempt the US from the
International Criminal Court, now joined by their contemptuous attitude
toward President Aristide must be halted. It is time for the people of the
USA to make this point clear even if the administration continues to walk
around with wax in its collective ears, with eyes closed, and ranting about
its version of the world as defined by Bush.

Try 400TX in Rodinal diluted 1:100 for 18 minutes at 68F. Really good
tonal range and much finer grain that the high dilutions

I would check the working speed of the film with these times before
doing anything really serious, Rodinal makes a quarter to a full stop
speed loss on most films, depending on what film. Other than that I
like it, it's my everyday developer.

Try this link for a bunch of development times and combinations:

http://www.digitaltruth.com/devchart.html

I personally like TriX shot at 100 ASA with Rodinal 1+50 developed for 7.5
minutes. I usually shoot with a red filter. Now I can assure you that this
is not a development time you will find elsewhere but I do that in order to
get more than just a couple of shades of gray (!) decent contrast, darker
skies and Rodinal is so sharp! I had many years of experimentation until I
came up with this formula that I keep for TriX. If you shoot TriX at 400
the development time and the mixing is right on. It is however more grainy
this way.

That sound intrigueing, I think I'll try it, thanks!
