Wire-wrapping... *hehe*

For my university project (some puny 15 years ago ;-), I decided to have some 
serious fun, and designed a MIDI synthesizer around a 68HC11, a battery backed 
RAM, some EEPROM and three 8580 (newer SID) chips. 700 pins, all wire-wrapped. 
And it even worked! :-)

Actually, it's quite swift and effective method; it's the cutting and 
stripping of the wires that's a PITA, unless you have a really good tool - 
which I didn't at the time! :-D
