Actually, no, but it is stilted and funny. Cool, ballpark 10K zooming with high final resolution. Hilarious, all those gibberish voice commands.

A keyboard, how quaint.

A lot depends on the complexity of the PCBs, Are they dense multi-layer designs(6, 8, 10 etc.,) metal layer ones. Then you would need a professional who has clear understanding of vias (blind, through etc.,), ground planes on two sides of a signal plane(like in RF boards) and related but crucial details. It is doubtful if these pros will go through craigslist.

We've had a lot of applications through Craigslist. Craigslist tends to generate a lot of activity with a small fraction appropriate to the job, but that's fine... just weed out the bad ones (graphics artsy types, unemployed MSEEs, foreigners looking for work visas). I probably have 8 good ones so far and they keep coming in. The spelling on the resumes tends to be bad, but then good PCB layout people often can't spell. -- John Larkin Highland Technology, Inc picosecond timing laser drivers and controllers jlarkin att highlandtechnology dott com http://www.highlandtechnology.com

That's bullshit. Your statistical inanity is showing.

OTOH, misspelled reference designators are a PITA. ;-)

That's all automated these days. And we resequence the boards before we Gerber. The PCB software generates the BOM. So it's always right. Occasionally an ECO will say to change a resistor to a capacitor, so R99 is actually a capacitor. Still no problem. -- John Larkin Highland Technology, Inc picosecond timing precision measurement jlarkin att highlandtechnology dott com http://www.highlandtechnology.com
