Flickr user arms22 came up with this little “hack” to add at-a-glance color-coding to the resistor chart in his Maker’s Notebook. You could also just do neater colored squares, or outline the boxes for each color name, so you wouldn’t have to color in the entire row.

    The “green” line looks like it was colored yellow. ?? Maybe just reproduction problems. After you sort through your first 1,000 cheap assortment of resistors, you will likely always remember the colors/numbers. /g/
