Unfortunately, Afghanistan exchanges have gone expeditionary, so chances are slim to none that any will be available out here. Same with the internet. It's been pretty sparse. Most of my internet surfing has been via government as the commercial internet infrastructure isn't large enough to support anything beyond dial-up speeds. If I was back in Baghdad, that monster exchange would most likely get some. But here in Bagram and Kabul, it's peanuts, candy, and the occasional BR disc. The local Afghan knockoff stores have more (albeit junk) stuff available than the exchanges here. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Yeah I know about how scarce it is in those locations. You go to Al Dhafra and Al Udeid and both Internet and exchange is heaven.

The 5.0 is here
