[time-nuts] Scope Clock

Over at TVB's place the other night, we tried the clock on his
TDS3000B-series DPO and it worked fine with a bit of knob-twiddling.  The
cheaper TDS2000-series DSO in the recent Make magazine article photos also
seemed to do OK.  My 2430A is hopeless in X-Y mode, though.  It makes clock
look decidedly Daliesque.

Those newer Agilent portables should work very well indeed, since they're
quite a bit faster than the TDS3K series.
