You can also just plug a male to male jumper (or extra long though hole header pin) into a female to female jumper if you have both. Still, I don't think it's right to try to change your jumper's sexual orientation. XD

Well I only have male to male jumpers thats why I did this one .


 don't you have hard-drive jumpers?

Anything you want they are usefull in protoyping with breadboards and other stuff.

I personally did this for the first time yesterday cause I needed some to connect my raspberry pi to my arduino .


Oh this is just great, now what am I supposed to do with all these staples?

Of course in the end they say it didn't work - guessing due to the smaller diameter...
