As far as perf boards go, they are fine if you like wires. I prefer the
perfboard with the square copper tabs on the bottom. It allows you to
place components and then use solder bridges to route the path along the
squares. If you need to correct a path, simply heat up the solder in the
area to be corrected and tap the board to remove solder. The only
disadvantage to this method is the required amounts of solder....
