I soldered the voltage doubler circuit today. When I was designing the component layout I spaced everything out as far as I could stand. Normally I try to make everything as compact as physically possible, but usually the circuit stops working and I throw it away because I don't know what went wrong and there's no way to find out. This way hopefully nothing will go wrong in the first place, as it's very organized and well-made, and if something does, I will be able to test at points and fix a bad connection or whatever it is.

Go to June's progress page (http://www.craterfish.org/teamprodigies?pictures?2006/Jun) to see a picture of the soldered circuit-board!
