We are definitely missing some connectors to get the vent properly piped out
to the bathroom window window (sorry I kinda stopped on this for awhile), so
Ben that would be great. Also, I hacked together a couple of intake vents
with hepa filters on them to put on the mission st. wall so the vent will
work even better. The intakes are sitting in the darkroom now not attached
to anything, so really all I need to do is jigsaw up the wall a bit to get
it done.

I'll be in Hawaii Sunday (yessss), so alas won't be there. BTW, even though
I've done some work on the darkroom, I actually don't know how to develop
pictures in one, but would love to learn. If anyone is willing to do a class
at some point, I'd be into it (doesn't need to be soon...photoworks is still
being a good friend to me).
