Is red pin 1 or is brown pin 1?
The article says, "Brown is pin 1 or pin 11 or pin 21 etc. Red is pin 2 or pin 12 or pin 22 etc." in the first paragraph. However, the caption by the picture says, "Left: 20-way grey ribbon cable with wire no. 1 marked red." Also, if you go to this website, in the fourth paragraph it says, "Red means Pin 1." Can someone please clear this up for me? --Leo628 15:37, 1 March 2007 (UTC)
- you aren't reading the article correctly "The order of colors in a rainbow colored cable is the same as the electronic color code. (Brown is pin 1 or pin 11 or pin 21 etc. Red is pin 2 or pin 12 or pin 22 etc.)" (emphasis added). --Plugwash 15:37, 19:10, 1 March 2007 (UTC)
- I think you have highlighted a problem with the opening paragraph. In my opinion it is too long and uses a rather confusing writing style. The information about colors could and should be rewritten as a separate paragraph later in the article. -- Nick 15:56, 3 March 2007 (UTC)
- Good idea; it seems much easier to read now. --Leo628 20:12, 4 March 2007 (UTC)
