Prototype Shield Mega

This is a prototype shield for the Arduino Mega. I've purchased two mini bread boards for adding components. They fit precisely into the space between the pins. In order to reset the Arduino Mega, I've also added a pushbutton which is connects the reset pin to the ground.

They package contained also an ICSP header but I didn't solder that one because in that case, there would not have been enough space for the two mini bread boards. I finally ended up with the need to put the enternet shield on top of this one, so I cut out 4 rows of the right bread board in order to be able to solder the ICSP header (needed by the ethernet shield!).
