[sdiy] Opinion poll - Through Hole ~vs~ SMT

I'm a through hole person generally. I have done a few very small SMT 
circuits - all passive or just diodes so far. I have boards preped for a 4 
pin SMT transistor and a 5 pin logic but haven't solder them yet.

However it doesn't matter because I never buy boards, I always build my own. 
The latest project is developing I2C communication with the TI MSP430 
processors. (The trick is low value resistor pull-ups connected directly to 
Vcc.) Now I've got to read the docs to figure the processor current sink
