Well, I've taken a guess at what you're replying to... Let me
know if I'm way off. :)
I was referring to these specific BNC connectors on the Apple II.

It's interesting, though, that someone would use BNC to carry
power. On the other hand, there are some points where the huge
variety of plugs available (which carry the same signal) is
ridiculous. Sometimes I think the world would be better off
using, for instance, banana plugs, for everything. (Don't cross
the wires! -- unless you really mean it.)
