Questions relating to designing PCBs
By Tom2000

Earlier today, I submitted my first-ever PCB design to It failed the bot's DRC check, telling me I had a clearance issue. I tried it again. Failed DRC. Tried something else. Failed DRC.

I believe I had submitted various board designs four times. I was trying to figure out the problem by trial-and-error.

Suddenly, my mail client beeped at me. I received an unsolicited email from David, identifying my problem and giving me the solution.

Imagine that! I didn't have to contact tech support. Tech support contacted *me!* He must have been monitoring the bot, and, after he stopped laughing at the pitiful attempts by this clueless noob, decided to put him (me) out of his misery. :)

I've never had an experience like that. What a pleasant surprise!

David, thank you very much. That's service above and beyond the call of duty!
