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 Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...

My Hobby Website:
Take a break from the drudgery with some of these jokes, song parodies, anecdotes and assorted humor that has been collected from friends & from websites across the Internet. This humor is light-hearted and sometimes slightly offensive to the easily-offended, so you are forewarned. I have taken care to censor "humor" with reproductive function innuendo and hateful tirades, so it is all workplace-safe. I have also tried to warn of any links that will result in audio clips so you can take appropriate precautions. Please send any potential candidates for this humor page to the e-mail link above.
There is a plethora of comics with just about any theme on the Internet: electronics, physics, mathematics, finance, amateur radio, sports, and politics, to name a few. I could provide pages full of replications for your enjoyment, but one of the best ways to sample available comics for personal consumption and/or use in reports, presentations, etc., is to use the Search function on a website like CartoonStock. The above thumbnail image is a great example of an electronically-themed comic (by Dan Reynolds). In it, the anatomically correct mother, father, and son socket and plug family have the inscription, "Sparky! Your mother and I are shocked at your current behavior! Until you learn to conduct yourself properly, you're grounded!" "Oxygen and potassium went on a date. How did it work out? OK." The items on CartoonStock will cost you a small fee for use since it is basically a clearing house for artists looking to sell their copyrighted work. If you use the right keywords, it is possible to sometimes find very specific themes like this comic to the right (by Ralph Hagen) that features a vector network analyzer. The amateur astronomer in me appreciates the comic to the left (by Bradford Veley) with Nicholas Copernicus' mother scolding him, "'Someday, Mr. Nicky Copernicus, SOMEDAY you'll learn that the world doesn't revolve around YOU!" This is a way to add some humor to your document or presentation and keep it legit for a pittance of cash.
