BOFH - The Tin Whiskers Excuse  11 May 2010 
Source: - Posted by Anthony Pell   
Tin whiskers are a vaguely-understood electromechanical process that is related to the use of completely tin solder as opposed to tin-lead amalgam solder. It is a problem that has been known for a decade or more, but it is becoming more pervasive due to a rise in reliance on electronics.

"Do I believe that all closed systems are bad, or that they should think outside the box continuously, or any of the other ridiculous paradigms spouted in this diatribe? No." The perfect "co-op, open-sourced, self-governing commune qchapter wants his daughter to be a part of does not work."
