7:21 hammerhead74k: The problem with resistor color codes is that the colors vary in hue…
7:21 AngrySpinach: Electronics Assistant is great
7:21 mryan923: you will
7:22 AlbertStraub: I wonder why they never dumped the color code and just printed the numbers on? I mean SMD resistors have the numbers printed on. The color code must be from the days when you couldn’t print fast.
7:22 mryan923: git hub is messed up on my computer
7:22 AngrySpinach: Dear Mr Jobs…
