Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the lab Nothing was stirring, the weather was drab Peter and Bob sat up late and lamented That test gear budget cuts should be prevented When all of a sudden Saint Nick he appeared At the window and said “Well you both should be cheered! I’ve brought you for Christmas some Tek MDO’s And they should get rid of your test gear woes!” (Sorry, shameless plug, you'll gather I'm a Tektronix fan... :-)
