Solving an easy geeky puzzle might be a good way to prevent this from happening in the future.

Adafruit shows a resistor color chart, and makes people who sign up determine the resistance of a random resistor.  I wouldn't think we'd need anything that sophisticated.

Anyone, with access care to comment and/or add something like this?
