Raspberry Pi and Breadboard (Raspberry Leaf)

If you have ever tried connecting jumper wires to a Raspberry Pi then you will have noticed that unlike other systems, the pin names are not printed on the PCB.
While not a showstopper it is a bit of an irritation, especially as my two older Pis have different pinouts to current ones, which is why I was so interested by this idea from Dr. Monk's DIY Electronics Blog
They are simply printed paper templates that push over the GPIO pins making it so much easier to see what you are doing, and I can tell you after this weekend that they really help.
You can grab copies of these templates from http://www.doctormonk.com/2013/02/raspberry-pi-and-breadboard-raspberry.html
