[Chugalug] So what is the state of making your own circuit boards?

I thought about using them. But they won't take gerber files and the  
project has pregenerated gerber files.
Thank you for your interest in ExpressPCB. Our manufacturing service is  
only available to the users of our software. We have optimized this  
automated service around the ExpressPCB layout program. I'm sorry but we  
do not accept Gerber or other file formats, and importing is not possible.  
If you choose to use our software, I'm sure you will find it very easy to  
learn and intuitive to use. Please feel free to write if you have any more  
questions. Regards,
- Jessica -
