Tech support phone with RTFM sticker

We’ve got some new stickers at SparkFun. Use them to cover up unsightly iron burns, mark your notebook, or to remind yourself to read the datasheet. Above is the picture of one of the tech support phones. What does RTFM mean?

RTFM Sticker

Alternatively, what does it mean to you? When the stickers first came in, one of the guys in shipping stopped by my office to ask:

‘Nate… What exactly does RTFM stand for?’

‘Hah - what do you think it means?’

‘Real time fun machine’

‘Yep! That’s it.’

  • I’m so sad that the images for this have disappeared.. can you get them back?

  • I thought they meant Real Time Fracking Magic ( or something close to that).

  • Ha ha ha! ‘Real time fun machine’ :D I want one of those!

  • I love the stickers! I ordered 4 cards and just got them in the mail today.
    You guys should sell t-shirts with these pictures. One shirt for each: The Geek flame, RTFM and “Let Your Geek Shine”.
    I would absolutely buy them.
