Yay nice:D

I found grids actually very useful routing, since you can learn clever
'patterns' of via to shape the tracks around the available space; of
course the fanout dog-boning (typical for BGAs) is an obvious example of
that! Probably (with via shoving) that could be less important, maybe
it's only an experience/workflow thing...

And obviously comic sans is needed to label hard to route areas :D
