I know Drew did this to a Nikon DSLR and the results were awesome.

Using a few exposed 35mm negs, this guys turns his point and shoot into a digital IR.
I think I will try this with my old 4mp Sony P-73.

I don't want to wait to finish my roll of velvia to get the negs, do any of you film shooters have a few I could take off your hands?

This could possibly be a project at the next meeting.

i did mine (d70) kind of a ghetto way... which actually i preferred...

all i did was removed the IR-cut filter from the sensor and placed an visible-cut filter on the lens.

what this did for me was enable me to shoot UV, IR, and VISIBLE all at the same time... which was UGLY in a pretty sort of way... and i could then buy screw on lens filters of my choice to shoot whatever spectrum i wanted...

next up is a portrait series in ultraviolet. :)

"next up is a portrait series in ultraviolet. :)"

What is the appropriate filter for that?

a uv transmitting one of course... but if i understand correctly. some lenses work much better than others... and an ideal situation would be to use one of nikkor's specialized 'uv' lenses...
