    Meh. I found the personalities of the diodes to be excessively one-sided, the resistor is a total obstructionist, and the ‘electrolytic capacitor’ component was far too polarized for today’s political climate…

    I hope she’ll include a new, clever (and not awful) mnemonic for resistance coding.  I hate that Bad Boys, etc., is still stuck in my head after all these years.

      I have the sneaking suspicion that SMT will do more than decency when it comes to eradicating dubious resistance stripe mnemonics…

      I’ve always used Blackie Browned Red Oranges, Green and Blue Violets, and Gray Whites. I don’t see what the problem is.

    I vote for any politician as the Flip Flop.

    Maybe if I watch this, I will finally be able to remember resistor codes without looking them up. Though it’s possible I have a hardware glitch rather than faulty software – I can remember every postcode I’ve ever had, but none of my family’s birthdays.

    555 is a timer. 
    555 Spadina Rd, Toronto is a hidden power transformer.

    On August 10, 2012, Relmar Boys released their song “Five ! Five ! Five !”

    5 Days Later… on August 15th, Hans Camenzind, inventor of the 555 timer, 
    died. Shocking coincidence ?
