I could have also hit up instructables.com, hackedgadgets.com, makezine.com, hacknmod.com, elecktor.com... and others, but then this list would have been huge (nevermind that I deliberately did not include information on soldering, masking, drilling, milling, populating...)

Dorkbotpdx and BatchPCB are viable alternatives to fabbing boards yourselves. Might be cheaper than the startup costs of etching. DorkBotPDX is $5/sq in+Free Shipping (You get whatever boards you ordered in multiples of 3), BatchPCB is $10+$2.5/sq in+shipping.
Who is more foolish? The fool, or the fool who follows him
