@zeeglen: Pretty cool how it keeps differential pairs together right up to the end of the run.
The EDA tools available to us these days (both front- and back-end) simply blow me away. When you think about the raw computation involved in dynamically moving tracks and vias around -- mind-boggling is all I can say.
I have to tell you that the one thing that really took my breath away is something called
During watching this videos I kept my breath but the only thing I was able to do was constantly giggle. You look at it, it's so simple so intuitive (sorry to use this word) it feels smart. And I was giggling constantely remembering the many many hours sitting in front of the computer moving around stupid lines with dump tools.

When I started out in the early 1980s, you didn't even have the ability to *move* tracks -- you could place vias and you could use the digitizer to add track segments -- but all you could do was *add* or *delete* things -- we dreamed of being aboe to *move* things LOL
