The classic example is an IC suspended over a PCB by means of the little
pieces of #40 wire which connect it to the circuit. They're not always a
terrible way to do things, and they've even been blessed by the analog
weenies at NatSemi, but their use in modifying or even building circuits
intended for some practical use is an abomination. Experimentation, well,
OK, but to use it repeatedly? . . .
