    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!
