My thinking was this.
I've uploaded my waveforms to pico. Now I want to share them on the forum. I just thought it would be nice if while I was at home in the evening I could take what I've already uploaded, and write something for the forum. I really don't want to have to bring my scope home with me. I just want to either be able to download from the database you have so nicely set up, so that I can work on it while at home; preparing it for sharing on the forum, or simply just adding them to my posts.
Wouldn't the majority of people on the forum be picoscope owners anyway?
I do understand your motivation to keep it among picoscope owners only. I get that.
How about having a section of the forum just for owners of your scopes. Right now we have to be members of the forum and have a scope registered to us as well to gain access to the database. Could you not just have us log in once with our scope and record the fact that we do have a scope for access to this section, and from that point on not have to have the scoped hooked up?
Just thinking out loud
