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...

Engineering Career and Job Hunting Advice for March 16, 2016
Another month brings another
round of engineering career enhancement and advancement articles. I do try to vet them to filter out
one that appear to be written by people who have no real experience telling other people how to act
and run their lives. Sometimes when reading an advice article what comes to mind is the line in the
1970s vintage Jonathan Edwards song "Sunshine" that says, "He can't even run his own life, I'll be damned if he'll
run mine" (not that I ever really cared much for the song, either). These first two items are videos
recommending how to dress for an interview based on the job type. Most of the ones for women seemed
more like Valley Girl
fashion shows than serious how-to productions, but maybe I'm just not qualified to judge.
