Yes  -my reply to Dennis (who also spotted my mistake...) seems to 
have vanished, but here's the outline-
Specctra 10.2 works well, and routes boards to completion that just 
cause Protel's autorouter to sit still, doing nothing, or route 10% of the 
tracks very badly, then sit still, doing nothing. Very disappointing - and 
the DXP router seems to be just as useless on dense boards. (both work 
OK on easy boards, but if a board's easy enough that Protel's router can 
complete it, my customers want it smaller / cheaper rules / more 
functionality / fewer layers (or all of the above))

I'm not sure that 10.2 is a great improvement over 7.1 (or it wasn't 
vastly better than 8.x, I just needed some ore layers, which forced the 
upgrade)
If you want to send me a .dsn and a .do, I'll throw it at 10.2 and you can 
see if it's worth the money. After all, no point in giving Cadence money 
that could be spent on beer :)
