Here are a couple new-old
electronics themed comics for your pre-Saturday enjoyment. They appeared in a 1962

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

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