Seeing a comic panel in any modern technical magazine these days is rare, if for no other reason than a fear amongst publishers (and their lawyers) that somebody, somewhere might be offended.

BTW, these comics make good fodder for the front page of your technical presentations - a good way to soften the edge going into a meeting, especially if you are not good at delivering jokes.

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 ...
