2021-11-22 (M) EWC_Panel Wiring to protoboard

I had a couple of Arduino Mega 2560 prototyping shields, but I opted for one that didn't have any headers or switches soldered to it. I had to add some ordinary header pins, but the other model had double-tall socket/pin combo headers. I added 10KΩ resistors next to the first twenty-five GPIO. I connected one side to Vcc, and I left the other side open for incoming wires. I ran four wires from switch groups to the board, inserted the insulated wire through the via, and clipped them to the appropriate length before pulling them back. Going to all that work for the wires proved to be wasteful. The process went faster and smoother when I held the wire near the prototype board, estimated the necessary length, trimmed it, then made its neighbors roughly the same size. I landed the GND connections in a row and tied them together with a long wire on the backside to make them all common.
