Re: Tektronix Logic Analyzer Concepts Video Tapes

Ok, I may have spoken a little too soon. I got the manual and the tapes.

The tapes, of course, are huge! The first tape is 15 minutes, and the
second one is 10 minutes. The *binder* is over 3 inches thick but the
actual manual is only 37 pages long. I'm sort of bummed on one hand
because I was hoping for more instruction material - on the other hand the
manual gets right to the point and gives you only what you *need* to know.

So, the good news is since the videos are so short - I might as well
capture them into mpeg format and make them available online rather than
trying to ship DVD's. In other words it's FREE.

The bad news is the material is pretty basic.

Anyway, I'll put this stuff online in the next couple weeks and post the
URL for those interested.
