I got lucky - the "broken, unknown state" oscilloscope I got off eBay that cost US $80,000 new only needed a $16 part replaced.
Feast your eyes on some pretty awesome screenshots. to the first person who knows and can explain the physics behind the first 2 pictures.
@wohali Nice find!
I'm gonna guess that filters are involved. The first looks like you're looking at a signal that's passing through a multi-stage filter. Not sure about the second one.
@wohali Hmm... you're adding those two humps together to get a bigger spikier hump?

In the first you can see the built-in pulse generator connected to each of the 4 inputs in turn. They don't all happen at the same time, because of the slight delay introduced by the cable length between each input.
In the second screenshot I turned off the termination on the 4th channel and grounded the input, so you can see the pulse actually reflect off the input and back up to channels 3, 2 and 1.
How's that for a demonstration of physics? :)
@MightyPork Haha, after changing specific settings it'll click a couple of relays and pause for ~1-1.5s or so. The user group jokingly calls this the "Walter LeCroy Memorial Second" :D
It's pretty good as long as you aren't crossing one of those boundaries.

@Zoonie <3 here's the one of me that I drew about 15 years ago, I use it many places.
