You _ALWAYS_ install integrated circuits in DIL-cases with Pin 1 (marked by a
dot, a flatted edge, or a notch in the chip) to the notch in the socket. If
there is no notch in the socket (never seen such), you can look at the
solder pads on the board, pin 1 usually differs from the rest. So, if all
pads are sqare pads, pin 1 is round or vice versa.


In TV, there are bluescreens to put a faked reality behind a real played scene,
in Windows, you sometimes see the real scene, when the fakes go out for lunch.
