I didn't properly plan the power supply connector, the perfboard is already crammed with so many things that there's not much space left to add a proper keyed connector.

Until now I've used the 4 right angle pins for programming and supply, but without a keyed connector it's only a matter of time before it releases its magic smoke, so I ended up soldering a USB cable.
