    Well, it's nice to see how the rich half (quarter, eighth, ...) lives. :p That paper discusses techniques that are much beyond the capabilities of any scope I have or could afford to buy. No doubt if I was still working in industry, I'd have access to better test equipment, but I must make do with my stone axes...
