If you do a lot of work with analog components (and it sounds like you do),
it's probably worth getting capacitance and ESR meters, they can be obtained
(new) on eBay for not that much. I have one of each that I got that way;
their quality is pretty good, considering how little I paid for them (I
didn't think I'd be using them enough to make it worth paying out a lot for
really good ones). I haven't used the ESR meter much, but the capacitance
meter works quite well, and has been very helpful. Of course, it can't be
used in-circuit, but...
Alas, I can't (easily) help with the VT100 question! :-)
