I made my first one on a breadbored, just paid £3 for the Atmega168, and away i went.
Did you get it from coolcomponents.co.uk, only on their site it doesn't say whether or not the chip comes complete with Arduino bootloader already programmed?
PS: N00b's stripboard looks really nice - care to post closeup photos of both sides of your stripboard layout, and/or instructions? Thanks!
