R Rating for 5e3 board

R Rating for 5e3 board
What wattage rating are the 5e3 board resistors?  
I have some 1/2w resistors, been searching all over for whether that's what's all over the 5e3's hard to find I guess because everyone already knows it [except me for sure].  
The ones that came with it are 'squared' and about slightly larger than the more 'rounded edge' tan colored ones I have here.  
I wanna continue building but I'm not real entheused about experimenting with R Wattage ratings.  
Also I figure all the 25uf caps [smaller electrolytics] on the board are all 25v...I need to 'dig' one of those out I guess.  
Basically all the 'hard stuff' is done, that means sore hands from mega metal working in my case.
And now, a word from our sponsors:

Check out:  
Click on the link "BOMs" and you will get an Excel workbook click on the tab "5E3" this spreadsheet will give you the info that you need. If the layout you are using is different than the Weber layout you may have to guess on one or two parts but it should give you enough info for 99% of your parts.

Well, I downloaded and saved to desktop, windows unable to open this file...  
Basically I need a couple 68k resistors, and I'm about to just try some 1/2w ones I have...see if they hold.

1/2 W 68K resistors are fine.

With a subject line like "R Rating for 5E3 board" I was sure that I would find some links to filthy pictures... Darn! :(
