In the olden days, I would solder discrete components (resistors, LEDs,
etc.) to a DIP header and then plug that into a wirewrap DIP socket on
the board.  Example here:


The one exception is that I would generally solder IC bypass capacitors
directly to each IC's wirewrap socket, as close as possible to the board
so that I didn't use up much of the wirewrap post.

Sorry I missed the last meeting -- out of town -- but I'll try to
remember this for the next meeting.
