How did you calculate 100Ohm as the minimal resistance for the circuit?

I figured out what the maximum wattage of my power supply was, then figured out a resistor value that could handle that many watts. I then choose to up the value a bit to be on the safe side. The only thing it would do it slow down the charge rate of the capacitor.
