I can't do more than agree with Neil on all points! Don't lose the spirit after having routed the last ~1900 connections ;-)

It's not all gloom: the PCB is not much use as long as the CPU's have not arrived, and as you said, having tested with good results the path from Eagle-design to pcb in your hands is also a hurdle taken.

Looking forward to more updates!
