I think I can probably muddle my way through a soldering task again if I practice a little on some scrap wires. My problem is I don't know the difference between a potentiometer and a diode or a capacitor nor what the secret code colors and numbers mean either. Whenever I wander into a Radio Shack I keep expecting to see the guys browsing the tiny electronic parts racks exchanging secret handshakes or something. *Sigh*
Off topic and I may get drummed out of the electronic engineers guild but.......
Here's something that will help out with resistor colour codes
