A new breadboard technique.
I considered several options for assembling my circuit without a breadboard, but that predrilled board really was a key part to doing this quickly. It was now 2am, and time for an early morning feeding. I raced down the stairs to find a tasty snack. This is where I found the solution to all of my problems. Right there in the second shelf, laying flat beneath the tub of sour cream, was a short stack of 8″ flour tortillas. I popped out the last two of the flat uniform sheets, and threw the packaging in the trash. To one I attached a slice of cheese, rolled it into a tight tube, and consumed it in three very large bites. The other was whisked up the stairs to my work room.
