Another comic no doubt hit home with in-home servicemen of the day; at least the owner was honest. The other plays off a brand of humor common in the day that demonstrated the public's fascination with all the newfangled technology showing up every day.

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 ...
