No windows, tiles all around, a large sink, lots of storage space and a door that can be locked from the inside make the small room situated to the right of the entrance to WhateverLab the perfect place for our Fotolab/Chemielab (and thanks to Bina & her mad restoration skillz, it is actually useable again as of 01/11!).

There's now a Fotolab mailing list as well as a Fotolab soup, yippieh!
