Immediately before the change to Altium tactics, I was for Protel if I ever
had to do it on my own.  It was affordable.  My subscription to Protel's
designer forum followed soon after my interest in layout.  For quite a
while, I have remained a subscriber to this list because I want to pay back
what I have learned.  I do realize the possibility for me to ever pay back
what I have learned may be nonexistent, especially since I keep learning.
Damn this perpetual wheel.  I keep trying.
My point is that I will be a spare tire or the backrest of a seat on the
bandwagon if I cannot be a wheel.
I found out that I missed this list after I had trouble with the list
server.  I hope that I am not forced to miss it again.

Cheers!
Drew
