I don't think there's a huge amount, just some naturally occurring calcium that didn't get filtered. Sometimes, calcium chloride, and other ionic compounds, are added to water for added their electrolytic properties. That's why electrolyte water has so much stuff in the ingredients section.

The term "bug", when used to refer to a problem in a computer program, actually originated in the 1940's. Back then, computers used vacuum tubes, which were very fragile, just like light bulbs. And, just like light bulbs, they gave off a good deal of light and heat. This attracted moths, who got into the circuits and caused the tubes to burn out. As the technicians went in to repair the computer, they found the moths so often that the term "bug" came to be used for any problem with the computer and/or program.
