@alunh_1: I guess the Bob Pease approach would not make you happy: See http://www.rfcafe.com/references/electrical/bob-pease-breadboard.htm

Let's put it this way, which design would you prefer to debug -- mine or Bob's? LOL

Yes! That's what I'm talking about -- you don;t havwe to spend time doing tyhis -- but you choose top because it makes uyou more "satisfied" with the final product -- right?

I try, as much as possible, to put symmetry in my PCBs. I try to keep trace spacing the same and even put parts consistently oriented. It's not always possible, but I always seem to at least try to do it that way. It is kind of an obsession.
