[sdiy] Issue with CD4024 Ripple Counter

Hi Dave,

It sounds like you have ground-bounce problems. This comes from 
parasitic impedance, and primarily in power-lines. First level fix is to 
put ceramic caps across the power of each chip, and real close to keep 
the loop small. Larger loop = larger parasitic inductance = larger 
ground-bounce. Also consider how signal is routed and that there is a 
good return-path for the mirror current as you feed it from one chip to 
another. For classic CMOS this should not be too difficult, but it's the 
same thing that shows up.
