    If I have a PCB (rather than a 'protoboard', or dead bug) I find that _large_ smt (0805 size) 2 terminal devices like resistors, are easier to work with than the corresponding through hole devices. No lead bending, poking through holes and then snipping. Put a bead of solder on _one_ pad; melt it and slide the device into place, then solder the other side.

    It is when the stuff gets teeny tiny that smt gets hard.
