RF Cafe Cool Pic - IMS2011 Curtain Tiebacks

Some noted thinkers and problem solvers claim higher education helps foster "out-the-box" thinking. This might just be a prime example. Here is my solution to the need for tiebacks to go with the new bedroom curtains. While attending the IMS2011 show in Baltimore, Melanie and I each were treated to neck straps for holding ID cards. EM simulation software vendor CST provided them as part of their promotion campaign. The bright color scheme matches these curtains perfectly, and the straps happen to be just about the right size for the task at hand. There is only one window in the room, so two straps are enough.

In case your fashion sensibility is concerned that using the CST neck straps would possibly cheapen the decor, fear not. The curtains are straight off the Walmart rack. No harm done. Until such time as the bedroom gets painted and remodeled, CST gets some free advertising from the neck straps.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
