RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2010 mainly due to other social media
platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around
August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and
Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe
Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great
posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads,
including responses to the original posts.
I have several CD-ROMs full of
application notes, magazine articles, etc. I am
in need of some way to set up a searchable database
for these CD-ROMs.
I would like the database
to somewhat build itself - i.e. I will have an ASCII
file that would include company name and title (for
an application note) and then this file could be
imported to the database.
I would like to
be able to search by date, author, title, magazine
title, company name, and keyword.
have some thoughts, ideas, or suggestions on how
I could do this?
Thank you very much for
your time and help. Michael

a while ago, I kept 2x2 inch paperbox database.

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 tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...
