Dr. Dave,

That is NOT true !  I use http://www.futurlec.com/PCBService.shtml to 
handle the my ExpressPCB actions.

They are over in Asia somewhere and have been quite happy with their 
work.  They are a bit cheaper than ExpressPCB themselves.

They also will do other PCB programs and Gerber's as well.
