Last roll of Kodachrome

Spread the news: If you have a roll of Kodachrome in a glove compartment or a drawer or box somewhere, better get it processed now! The last Kodachrome processor in the world will no longer process Kodachrome at the end of this year (2010).

I read the following article and started waxing nostalgic over my film processing days:

Kodachrome was such a different process. Even in its heyday there were only a handful of companies that actually processed it, which involved a long, elaborate process. There was only one company on the West Coast that did it as far as I know. It is not at all like the (relatively easy) E6 processing that is used to process other slide transparency film like Ektachrome or Fujichrome.
