@Terry, Pin D3 is connected to Vcc, Pin D8 is connected to ground. D being the 4th strip, 3rd & 8th holes.
I'd like boards that have the same layout as the solderless breadboards, so we can transfer right over.
Definitely get a "modified wrap" tool. It puts a turn or so of insulated wire around the post as well as the N turns of bare wire, which makes for significantly more physically robust boards, when you're all done (especially since the "edge" of the insulated part may be a physical weak point in the wired, if your stripping of insulation wasn't perfect...)I remember when the OKI tool was about $10. $30 is ridiculous :-(
