I always thought that it was best to use the least ammount of copper you can
with digital logic, come to think of it I think I made this rule up myself
so any input appreciated. BTW I just got a board back from the shop, it has
8 mil ground and power traces. Seems to be working OK. I dind`t mean to do
it but it was a rush job and I fogot to manually route the power traces.
