OK, I'll take the oops on that one.

Thanks,

 I do know that resistors are far easier to emblazon letters onto than a
ceramic cap is.

 Ten glazed caps go in as one value, and come out as ten different
values.

  Lasers cost more than cheap glaze and ovens?

  Sure it is also about cost.  Not only was marking them hard when they
did do it, but now that they are physically smaller, it would cost
considerably more to mark them legibly now than it used to.  They would
have to use a tighter focus laser, for starters, as the res of the old
lasers is likely to low for the tinyer <sic> lettering.

What I hate about these components, I am looking at 3 0805 bits, one is
a resistor, the second is a cap, and I have no idea what the third is
but they are the same colour.

Simple, because they have gotten away with it for 30 years.

  Six at most.  When I inspected assemblies, many years ago (14?), they
were there, and when I designed assemblies more recently, I began to see
them disappearing.

  Form factor is the reason, and lack of true need, IMO.

  The first thing I do to deck out my proto bench is make out about 300
pcs each of every cap and resistor (and most all tape and reel parts
other than big chips)we have in stock in bulk.  Little 10 or 20 pc strips
fit real nice in a parts cabinet drawer.  Smaller samples of those we
have less counts of, of course. Marking the P/N and or value on the back
and or front with a sharpie IDs each strip just fine.

  That way, future ID through visual comparison is also capable, as the
parts are in my kit cabinet to compare with.

I'm forgetful ;-)  I do now remember ValleyGirl.  My apologies... I
only see follow-ups to NymNoNuts occasionally as I do my (roughly)
weekly filter checks :-)

  You're an idiot, and you have a copyright on exactly ZERO trademarks,
you retarded fuck.

  Let that damned jaw infection kill you already!  Preferrably in
excruciating pain.

 hahahahah...  You're such a pathetic joke.

He also knew how to spell better than a dope like you.  His name was
Lurch, dumbass.

 Lyrch is what you will do as that jaw causes you to writhe.

  I find it quite fitting that you waste your personal time futzing with
your retarded filters.  Utterly hilarious.

 Bwuahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah!

  There is no gender indicated, you retarded twit.

  Both terms are Latin.

  Violet pachyderm is a colored elephant.

  Violet Ditzybitch is a person's name. They are two different things.

  One is an animal, the other is your daughter.

  But you have to be human to get such things.  You do not qualify.
