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...

Tech-Related Comics
The Saturday Evening Post

A few years back, I bought the issues of The Saturday Evening Post which contained the very first published comics from Peanuts creator Charles Schulz. As with just about everything else, they were available on eBay for a few bucks apiece (although prices have really gone up since the beginning of the year). Most of the issues also had articles and advertisements - and even comics - that make appropriate fodder for both RF Cafe and my hobby website, Airplanes and Rockets. Here are a few of the tech-related comics I found. The first one might seem to be a bit distasteful to the survivors of the RMS Titanic disaster and/or their relatives, given that only 36 years had passed. The next one is about architectural engineer - ahem, and the Hazel comic applies for obvious reasons. FYI, I colorized the original B&W line drawings.
