Don't know if this is the right place to put this warning, you all probably know it anyway, and I did mention it in the daily post. Resistors do not like the wet as I have found out to my cost. Keep your resistors dry. End of lesson

Wet should be kept in its place but it does have one.

Inside a pint glass, for example, albeit temporarily pending absorption by me.... :D

But some wet is good, electolytics, Leclanche and lead acid batteries for instance. Wet should be kept in its place but it does have one.

My late father-in-law, a doctor of physics, never referred to a car or boat as having a flat battery, it was always a flat acc(accumulator)

Oh well, it's different for us simpletons

Definitely a case where resistance is not advised.

But only if you have the capacitance....
