OH: “He's literally jumping sharks that are jumping other sharks”

Can any Fritzing experts out there suggest how I should include removable jumper/pinheader connections in my circuit designs? I can add both sides to the circuit separately, but feel I should link them together “properly” too.

And now the train I was on (late) has been terminated early. The Darkness said it best: m.youtube.com/watch?v=5OR9edcM

Just bought @[email protected]’s book, Open Revolution (openrevolution.net/). Looks interesting!
