You should be OK with a 35v rated cap...

The reason for the 470/25v was because Kevin had one on hand when I was placing my order... he didn't know if we should go under 15v (or there abouts) because of the voltage of the battery

I have a long weekend coming up... unfortunately not to work on pet projects, but to travel back home where there will be NO working on pet projects. It looks like the iGuino will have to be hooked up after I get back... kind of sad... expecially since I will be using a whole tank this weekend... I will get over it.

How big does it need to be?

As suggested earlier, this one should be big enough:

RadioShack.com - Cables, Parts & Connectors: Component parts: Breadboards & IC sockets: Multipurpose PC Board with 417 Holes

Anything larger and you can always cut the board down to size (and have leftover board for other projects). I'm fitting my additional circuitry all in the same footprint as the iDuino and stuffing it in the RatShack 4x2x1 box like show in the Workspace thread. The first post in this thread has pictures with the size of board and layout if you want to follow them exactly.

What makes a breadboard (easily) solderable is the copper traces around all the holes on the bottom side. Solder sticks to these and the component. If you get the ones with multiple holes connected, you don't have to worry about trying to bridge the solder from one trace to another, but you're limited in your layout freedom. I recommend getting a larger board than you think is necessary (maybe twice as large), and use a corner to practice your soldering techniques. Then you can build the circuit in the other corner and cut it to size. A small coping saw or band saw work great on these boards.

I will echo that one! I can't do the soldering without something for it to stick to. Mine is constructed, and I used this board (the fourth picture on the first post). My board is sized to the LCD, not to the iDuino, but that really shouldn't make a big difference.

Is the pinout on an RBBB the same as the iDuino?

Doesn't seem so, especially on the bottom row:

How long does it takes for fund-logic package to arrive via first class? Was hoping to see it here after returning from a 4 days trip. Package was shipped out on the 14th to Boston, Ma.

I went with the cheapest shipping option, and I seem to remember it took just under 2 weeks (not positive). Remember, you are placing an "international" order, it comes all the way from Canada!
