Well, how bout pimping up your breadboard and turning it into a lean, mean, digital-development machine?
This is a short list of the most useful breadboard tricks that I have picked up over the years. Hopefully there's something in here that you will find useful which you haven't already thought of.
Ok, I don't really have 10 tips to share; it just makes for a catchier title. :P
Step 1: Power connector
See the following picture. It's made from SIP header pins and protoboard. After point-to-point wiring, it is covered with sculpting epoxy.
Step 2: Power and Ground Buses
All you have to do is unscrew the breadboard from the backing, if it has one. Then cut away a strip of the foam backing with an Exacto knife. Next, solder the power and ground buses with some fine wire. Then cover with tape and screw it back onto the backboard.
