I haven't processed film for some years, having been fixated with pinhole and handmade cameras, paper negatives and Harman Direct Positive Paper. But I had three rolls of Ilford FP4 Plus, sitting on a shelf in my office, from I didn't know how many years back. I finally decided to get back into processing them.
It turns out they were seven years old, and processed nicely in R09 at 1 + 25 for 8 minutes.
Now, with that as inspiration, I've loaded my Minolta X700 with some HP5 and now find myself itching to shoot and develop film once again.
I wrote a blog article about my experience. I hope this serves as inspiration for others, to get back into film.
