Test Equipment Anonymous tea@groups.io

Since 15 January 2017, Test Equipment Anonymous, a.k.a. The TEA House, has been home to test equipment lovers of all kinds, from the mildly appreciative to the completely addicted. Whether you're just starting out with your first handheld multimeter, or you have the worst case of GAS (gear acquisition syndrome) and your house is full of test equipment, you are welcome here.

Warning: The only therapy you'll likely receive here is wholehearted encouragement for your affliction. Proceed at your own risk.

In addition to the Groups.io rules of conduct, TEA does not permit discussions of contentious topics which include, but are not limited to, politics, religion, race, sensitive current events, etc. In other words, we're all here to enjoy camaraderie based on test equipment and electronics, not to start conflicts. To that end, off-topic discussions are to be expected, but don't derail the main subject of someone else's topic. Just create a new one for the desired discussion and use the #TEAngents tag, if the subject matter doesn't fit any other one.
