would you believe if i told you that the whole color code got "stuck" in my mind by accident? XD

i was gonna build a transistor booster (that didn't work BTW), and as i looked for the resistors values, i dunno how but i got able to simply look at a pile of them, and find the one i was looking for... after looking to the color chart only twice.
lol its kinda weird.

but its a nice project. i know of a lot of technicians that have one of those.

I've no problem with the colour code actually. But I have problems with colours... So chart, school tool, whatever, all I really need is brand new eyes... :lol:

A DMM wound up being cheaper than a new set of bifocals.
