What is an oscilloscope?
Oscilloscopes are test instruments that display electronic signals (either waves or pulses) on a screen. It creates its own time base against which signals can be measured, and displayed frames can be frozen for visual inspection. It is sometimes abbreviated as CRO, for cathode-ray oscilloscope, or commonly called scope or O-scope.

2008-08-01 Is it too much trouble to learn new tools?
We become emotionally fixated on a certain solution to the exclusion of all others. We could do it right. We could take the time to learn the new tool, the new technique and the new approach. We could do a little planning rather than doing the usual. We could use a little finesse, but we don't. It's too much trouble.
