I do my boards a bit differently. I use single-sided FR4 PCB,
usually 0.060" thick and drill holes for the pins and punch them in
(slighly countersinking the foil side). It's only a little more work
than using the gridded-out-lots-of-pins protoboards, but more than
makes up for it in that components are easy to identify (no "forest
of pins" effect) and presents a ground plane that's second to none.
