That doodle was annoying my noodle all day. Has any one here ever seen such a waveform, must be something the artist thought nifty, or else he or she drove to work in a Thrifty. Shouldn't the Hertz be a sine, or a spark, or a faraway clap in the dark?

I think Monsieur Fourier would have a lot more to say
about a waveform so affectedly quaint.
Its crests are too round, its troughs too profound,
and those colors: do signals have paint?

Could it be a homage to a moustache of that era?

Ahhh, I hadn't closed that circuit! Seeing the signal source, it does make sense, but it still does not resonate. Happy day-after-birthday to Heinrich, and also to Matt G., who can get back to it and work twice as hard today!
