@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

@Duane: I try, as much as possible, to put symmetry in my PCBs.

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?
