Silicon Valley Envy
is a clinical condition exhibited by many cities across the U.S. and

NY City, Silicon Bayou in New Orleans, Si Desert in Phoenix, Si Dominion
(aka Si Plantation) in Fairfax, Si Forest in Portland, Si Hills (aka
Si Gulch) in Austin, Si Mesa in Albuquerque, "Philicon" Valley in Philadelphia,

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
