Re: Disable Daylight Saving Time

Hey, at least they didn't encounter the dreaded 'Blue Screen of Death'. That could have put a real damper on their efforts.

Disable Daylight Saving Time

Some data analysis software that handle Daylight Time changes poorly may also be confused by a stream of time-stamped data when the clock suddenly jumps forward or backward an hour.  The best solution for such systems is to disable the Daylight Saving Time option.  Simply run them year-'round on Standard time, or use UTC (Zulu or Greenwich Mean Time).  This should also solve the problem on systems that may need to be restarted after a Daylight Time change, either because they're regularly turned off over the weekend, or may suffer a power glitch that causes them to reset during a weekend when the local time changes between Standard Time and Daylight Time.

Ahh yes, I remember CE/ME/NT dimly. Had there been a keyboard, you might have been able to "tab over" to the ok, and hit return.  Of course, a simple thick plastic cover could have remedied the elbow-to-the-touchscreen problem, but that /is/ mechanical engineering... ;-)

Well, 10 years on, I suppose you would not think of operating a scope without a pointing device now. Also, I see that they moved away from Windows to some other OS. Linux, maybe? Ont he other hand LeCroy's latest scopes are now Windows, to afford easier enterprise network connectivity.

Funny story. It's true that it's hard for one guy to think of everything when it comes to design. Even a team of experts can't think of everything all the time. But that's why we have beta testing before the release of any product to the market. They should have at least thought of that one.

Scopes should never have been designed with windoze.  Dumb idea right from the start.

Interesting. Its not the first time we have had to think outside the box. Our problem was the need to have a firmware update. :D

Yes, you are right , we should have thought of that - IF we had known that the scopes were Windows-based before they arived. We asked for replacements for our old Tek 700 series scopes and ended up with Windows with a scope app.

The techs used them to stream music from the internet.

I ended up loading Labview on one of them to make a stand-alone data acq. and processing system. So it did have some advantages.

Re: Windows ME - it turns out that there actually was a reason for this choice. It was a 'light' OS. It did not need much memory. When I tried to upgrade to XP, I was quoted a horrendous price. Why? Because they had to replace the motherboard.

I agree Tekochip, but they should have known that.

I can't believe they actually used ME. That OS was a joke if anything at all!
