Actually it depends on the system, with the technologies we have today, you can program the device to act as a eol, you can create soft resistors with smart conditional analylis built into the devices .
Old technologys have eols. new acccess control uses software addressing built into devices.
Say goodbye to the resister and hello to the computer, software states & status.
"Still, he's fared better than his brother, who burned up when he was mistakenly connected across a 120V power source."
Try that with a small value electrolytic capacitor. Sounds just like a firecracker.
When I saw the topic line, I thought it was going to be some sort of "Where are they now?" for old, tired resistors.
"This unfortunate little guy was ripped from a classic RCA console stereo and rebuilt into this young experimenter's crystal radio that never did work right. Still, he's fared better than his brother, who burned up when he was mistakenly connected across a 120V power source."
The devils advocate in me reeeeally wanted to vote for number 2...
