Come to think of it, the air conditioning guy at work blew out a
perfectly good Fluke 23 and gave it to me, said it was not worth fixing.
But I think the Flukes use a custom part. This guy has a habit of
poking around in 480VAC 3-phase and such, so it's no wonder it got
fried. In my case, I don't think that I've ever seen a really worthless
DVM; usually it's a burned out low value resistor in the current
circuits. Or something like worn out banana jacks or the battery leaked
and corroded the insides.

PUNCTUATION - Apostrophe
Incorrect uses: (i) the apostrophe must not be used with a plural
where there is no possessive sense, as in ~tea's are served here~;
(ii) there is no such word as ~her's, our's, their's, your's~.
Confusions: it's = it is or it has (not 'belonging to it'); correct
uses are ~it's here~ (= it is here); ~it's gone~ (= it has gone);
but ~the dog wagged its tail~ (no apostrophe).
