Six channel 3 Million samples per second Arduino powered logic analyzer

I DID IT!  I not only got the six channel logic analyzer to work, but I have also succeeded in breaking the 2 million samples per second limit.
Here is the video of it working on YouTube: YouTube Video
Here is a close up of the screen showing the outputs of a 74LS390, with a 10 MC clock input.  The top trace is 100 KC and the bottom one is 1 MC.
How did I do it?  The sample rate is much faster, if you code it like this:


It takes a while to type in the code, but using a "loop" slows the sampling time down by more than 50%!

Blogger keeps trashing my code buy hopefully here it is;
