I was waffling on whether to use solder or wire wrap. I've never done WW, but reading http://wilsonminesco.com/6502primer/WireWrap.html seemed to make it look like a good way to go, even though I need to get a few tools and supplies. If I make more than this project with it it will be worth it. Well, today I took the plunge and purchased the pencil from an eBay seller in China. Hope it arrives soon.
In the mean time I am testing some of my circuits in broadboard with the arduino driving the circuit segments. I'll make a repo on github with the verious sketches although they may only be useful to me.
