Thanks!   I plan to publish the Gerber files and make them available to fab
at OSH Park as part of an a article I'll put up on my webpage at
https://sites.google.com/site/wayneholder/ but I want to make sure
everything works as expected before I do.  I'm still waiting for parts and
the PCBs to show up and I want to make sure every things works safely, as
AC voltages are involved.  So, it make take a week, or two before I'll know
if I need to fix anything, or redo one of the PCBs.
