Historic Tektronix videos back online--neat stuff for test equipment geeks!

N2IXK:
After being offline for over a year, the folks at VintageTEK appear to have fixed their hosting problems, and put their Video Gallery back up.

Lots of great stuff here, especially for restorers/collectors of vintage Tektronix gear.  Internal training films, corporate promotional films, etc.

I downloaded copies of many of these in case they go offline again...

Wow, I was very impressed by that. I used to manually layout and etch my own PCBs as a teenage hobbyist in the 70s (still do, sometimes), and I think of *those* whenever I see low-density manual vintage PCBs (especially without silkscreen) but this video really drove home the difference between my homebrews and commercial boards, despite the superficial similarity.

I'll say this for those low density techniques, though: when I stumble across one of my old projects, 30+ years later, I expect it to still work, and it almost always does, more or less.

For the PCB video: The music... seriously. I wonder how many musicians died making that music.
