    Watching BBCA this morning there was a story on voting in Afghanistan.
    Folks were running mock elections to train for the upcoming elections.
    A sight guard made of cardboard was being used at one of the tables.
    It said on the box "GOLD FREE COMPUTER". I can't imagine there is much
    gold anyway on a cheap computer. But does this make sense? Are many
    PCBs with connectors being made without any gold at all? It seems like
    I'm always seeing gold plate inside electronic equipment.

    Frankly, if it's in Afghanistan, I wouldn't be surprised if it's
    a brand name.
