thanks. yes, they are vishays from digikey. they're pretty, huh?
that was a previous build and I used almost entirely just that R series. had to go with a 'vishay equiv' for the 1M since that's not in the shiny-dark-blue series, it seems ;(
I think they were not too cheap - over a quarter each. for a resistor, that seems obscene to me, but I don't use *that* many of them.
