Possible new twist for 2006

Photographically I seem to have more equipment than the time to use it. There has been talk of replacing my Nikon F5 with a digital SLR but last night I woke up with a different idea. Why not start shooting black and white with the F5, develop the film myself and scan the negatives? The cost of doing this would be minimal, involving a new developing tank, chemicals and a thermometer. I would probably use both fine grained and high speed Ilford film, depending on the whim of the moment. It might just re-awaken my dormant interest in 35mm.
