I totally agree.  I've been reading his stuff now for at least a jillion years (ok, a bit of an exaggeration - but probably 20 years or so).

Jack Ganssle is great. He usually knows what's he's talking about.

My first thought was '....yeah, I bet that sucker costs a bit..' The answer is: Nope. It is a bit south of $300.  That is both a nice price point and a lot of capability.

I still remember trying to trouble shoot a 8048 which was having a bit of problem handling a serial RS-232 port (using software decoding, of course)  Oh, yeah, I was using a 454 scope (not storage!).  Sat in a darkened room, running the bad routine time after time as I tried to figure out where I had goofed up (after 3 days, I found my error - a quick change in the code and the problem was fixed and I was a bit smarter).  Anyways what I wouldn't have given for something like the Logic 16.

Now if I could get a 4 channel analog scope with all the goodies (e.g. storage and deep storage, etc).  Wait, I probably can!  Oh, my, the world moves on.
