I've been considering getting your board. Then I was thinking, if I'm going to make boards for the 7 segment LED displays, would it be ok to put the 595 on those boards. That way I'm only running 3 wires instead of 8. Just wondering what the pros/cons are, besides the obvious of 3 wires vs. 8 wires (plus pos. & neg.)
I'm playing around with Eagle right now (learning that software) so thoughts like this are bouncing around in my head.
