Haven't seen flat cable that looked like that since my engineering days!

Thanks for the comment. FYI that flat cable is only a light source.

If course, and I was also kidding about the luminous and multicolored ribbon cable. Ribbon cable does in fact come in a multicolored style, but each of the colors represents a digit and is the came code used in those colored bands on resistors: black, brown, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, (slate) gray, and white represent the digits 0 through 9. Multicolored ribbon cable therefore starts with brown (conductor #1) on one end and runs through the other colors, repeating as necessary. The more common gray cable has every fifth and tenth conductor with a printed red or blue stripe on it.

On resistors, there is often a gold or silver band. If it is the third band from the gold represents a multiplier: x0.1 for gold and x0.01 for silver. If the band is any other color, that represents the number of zeroes tacked onto the end of the basic value. If there is a fourth band and it is metallic-colored, that represents the tolerance of the resistor, with gold being 5 percent; silver, 10%; and no band, 20%. You don't see 10% and 20% resistors much these days though. You also see color codes on 1% and 2% resistors sometimes, but their tolerance bands are brown or red or they lack one altogether. More usual these days are chip resistors that are not color coded, or precision resistors where the last of four digits is the multiplier and the final letter is a tolerance code, with the decimal point within a number being replaced with the letter R. The R also means the final digit is another figure in the basic resistance and not a multiplier.
