What are you folks using for perfboard shields? I like the style that has 3 pads tied together, and maybe with some Ground and Vcc busses, but nothing too fancy or custom. I ended up buying a board at Radio Shack, and cutting it down to size on the table saw. It's not perfect, and I need to get some of those offset 8 pin headers that they have at CuteDigi, but still, it's better than any of the commercial alternatives that I could find.
And why is there that weird spacing between the two 8 pin connections?!
