Kirt, You have done a magnificent job with RF Cafe. It is hard to believe that I just discovered RF Cafe this weekend. That is not entirely true, as I have seen it returned in search results and come here, but never "discovered" the wealth of material you have amassed.

After seeing your calim of more than 3,000 pages I felt compelled to test its validity. Wow. I spent hours this weekend perusing many, many pages, so you will probalby notice a spike in traffic. The humor pages and your stories (cogitations?) are real page-turners, in the vernacular of novels and other exciting books. I even took many of the quizzes (did quite well). Oh, and the technical references are excellent as well. It is nice to see that your material is not just a replication of everything else on the Web (ok, the humor is repeated, but at least your credit sources).

Anyway, keep up the great work. You are a true asset to the field of RF engineering.

Cheers! :thumright:

Thanks Mr. Tesla...may I call you Nicola?

I'm glad you happened to take time to explore the vast riches of RF Cafe :wink:

If you or anyone else who read this has suggestions for content, it is always welcome. There are around 3,300 pages on RF Cafe right now, not including a couple thousand Forums pages. I'd like to add another 500 by this time next year, so that will mean about two pages per day - a lot more work!

I've been hampered in the page addition effort due to it taking a loooooooooooong time going back and modifying the HTML code on every page to get it to conform to HTML4.01 Transitional standards. Now that most pages are done, I'll have more time to devote to new material.

Sorry to run on here. Thanks again for your visitorship.
