I suspect you also typed route and walked away to drink your coffee while the board 
routed.  Was this after you used the autoplacement tools?  Take a deep breath, put you 
reading glasses on and read the article I wrote for Electra.   I have no vested 
interest in this with Electra, (unlike some others on this list).   If you follow the 
format I outlined, you will learn to use an autorouter.    I learned from a fellow 
named FRANK FRANK.  That is not a typo  that is his both his first and last names.     
After attending numerous and useless canned demos and  seminars with Cadence,  Frank  
opened my eyes on how to use autorouters.    Frank  has also endorsed this router.  I 
would have to say he is one of the foremost experts in autorouting I have ever met.   
Please dont type route and walk away from the PC again, your boss might think you can 
be replaced with software.

It is not a matter of free speech,   it is a matter of saying something that is 
totally wrong.   Doesnt any one have any integrity anymore?  The router works well.
