Which reminds me (not me this time): using the yellow paper only
(fortunately a manual developing system) yielded practically no
information of scientific value.
	And (me this time), filtering into a vacuum flask using a 
(millipore?) filter disc _with_ the blue separating paper still there 
will decrease the flow-rate significantly..  

Its good to learn how to laugh at ones own mistakes, no matter what 
one said at the moment of discovery...
