    Anyone remember "big boys race our young girls but violet generally wins?" That's the resistor color sequence. If there's any old school electronic gurus like me - you'll probably remember another version - that is a bit more risque - you might say.

    Explain what you mean by that phrase so I can throw that in my arsenal to remember.

    Note the colors on those resistors. The first letter of each word of that phrase correlates to the color. It's an easy way to remember it. It's sort of a lost art now, but there used to be a day when I needed to quickly figure out what a 47m ohm resistor colors were - for instance.

    Ok cool, yea I figured thats what it was adding up to just wanted to confirm it. Kinda like the old saying for the army generals always stop by 7-11 for food easy way to remember the rank structure thats how I remembered that way back lol.

    YES!!! We used to have a saying to remember those but I can't remember it now...It'll come to me in a few days I'm sure.
