Iím in the same boat as you I have everything I need for my next few builds but havenít had time to actually build anything.  Iím hoping to get some free time over the next two weeks to finish some of them.

No new code but news:

They've improved the quality of their resistors.  On my recent order, I ordered a bunch of metal film, and the leads are not as flimsy.
The color of the blue is darker.  Same low price as before; 1.2 cents per.

I noticed that in my last order, almost one years ago, just one package of resistors.
Sometime I used the thin leads of those resistors to join the jumpers in one hole in some veroboard layout. With thicker lead it will be a harder.
Anyway, I have a little bags with a bunch of old leads. ;)

You can put thin resistor leads into via's, usually :)

I never understood the complaints about Tayda's thinner leads. I find them easy to work with, they bend way more easy and make for good jumpers on vero boards. Love those thinner leads!

Theyíve been known to break, thatís about it. I use them.

Only complaint I've ever had with them is they don't work well with sockets if you want to play around with values. That's pretty much it for me.

Yeah thats the main complaint i have as well.  Also using for links offboard, they tend to break.  I prefer thicker leads personally, but i can see both sides.

Yes, I agree.

And yes, I admit that was a problem. I used to tin a bit the leads to create a thin thick to help the resistor to stuck in the socket.

I think in all the time I've been using them I had two or three break on me. Which seems to be about the same as my experience with resistors with thicker leads. Which can often be a real bitch to desolder from a PCB as the thicker leads often cause them to jam while desoldering.

Only complaint I've ever had with them is they don't work well with sockets if you want to play around with values. That's pretty much it for me.

I noticed that too when I bought a simple breadboard. Ironically also from Tayda.
