I would say 5000 pins would come before "unlimited" <g>

Michael . . . .

I'm sorry that I left my comment at . . . . 5000 pins or *unlimited* ,
whichever comes first.  I should have finished my thought and
added . . . .

Some EDA Vendors may claim unlimited pins , when in reality ,
they do have a limit , but they never think that you will exceed that
limit.  Resembles statements like * Plug-n-play * , * Never-needs
ironing * , etc. . . . .

I'll be more careful in the future to finish the thought . . . .
Thanks . . .

And it was easy to use..........!!!!!!!!!!
I have only been upgrading to keep the board making people happy and
to avoid having to custom make the hideously large library of new smt
footprints.
