sometimes your scope trigger can fool you a good period of time.

5am coffee, alarm clock set to 5:15am and me awake since 4:30. Find the mistake ...

@Dtl which is fairly normal considering how old that stuff must be at some spots.

@Dtl "ah we do an update so this issue is fixed ... oh now we have other issues..." - kind of thing?

everything set up for testing and then, batteries empty ... meh ...
