100,000,000 Ohms @ 1/4W
V^2 = P * R
V = 5,000
Betcha can't shove 1/4W through it! I may be wrong. I bet it's called 1/4W because it is made that size. You'd have a similar problem with those 0 Ohm Black-black-black "resistors".
Sorry to hear that your leaving the practical side of the hobby. I don't need your stuff. I have my own. Maybe I'll be the last old codger holding his bags of parts. I'm about 1 year younger than you and, looking at this week's postings, I think most others in this message base are also of similar age. It looks like young electronics hobbyists are few and far between.
