I have a Slice of Pi prototype board, but I'm somewhat confused as to how I'm supposed to use it. None of the pads in the prototype area seem to be connected. How am I supposed to wire stuff together if the pads aren't connected in the board?
(To be clear: I'm expecting this to act like a breadboard, where some pads are connected so I can solder LEDs and resistors into the holes and they'll be connected. I can tell the pads aren't connected internally because I see infinite resistance on my multimeter between the pads. Some pads are obviously wired together via traces on the board; those pads have no resistance on the multimeter.)
Edit: Based on the bottom-side image on this page, one is supposed to use solder to connect adjacent pads that are to be connected. Is this correct? It seems kind of janky.
