    Yes, I would off load those fold down totes and that stuff was thrown in there with no regard for damage at all.
    The guys pulling those orders from the RSC " earned" a bonus , depending on how fast they filled orders.
    They made good money.
    We sent it right back.

    The normal C29 seems to be out of stock in lots of places. Cobra's own website only has the pink and NW versions in stock.

    Thanks. I don't actually need one. I was thinking of just burning up some Cabela's points and noticed the C29 is gone off their site. (it was just drop shipped from Cobra anyways). Then I checked Amazon and RightChannelRadios and noticed they are gone there too. And then I see its mostly out on google's shopping tool. That made me think of this thread.

    Americans have been living outside their means for decades.
    You might get that raise to $20 but your hours will be cut in half. Careful what you wish for.

    At last count here in Ft Wayne there are over 48,000 trucks stacked up in several areas of the city. Deer are running into the sides of them, mice chewing wires, converters being cut off, and people stealing parts from under the hood. Who wants to buy a new 2021 anyone?

    You warned us. Its too late now to get anything from China by boat. Ship by AIR if you want it.

    What will this mean for China's production capacity?

    Read on hackernews that Intel NICs are now getting 52 week lead times.

    Thinking about getting a new PC or server soon? Better get your order in now.

    China’s production advantage is fading. They need to convert from an export economy to a more self-sufficient consumer economy. But unlike 1950s USA, they have neither a strong currency nor advantageous planetary per capita GDP.

    The Belt & Road Initiative is proving far more costly than they imagined, and inherent Chinese corruption (top to bottom; a fact of life) means what they build falls apart. Shoes, or high speed rail.

    Cutting off some industries altogether is how the criminal gang running China tries to take pressure off itself in the interim.

    Government, currency and economy are all the same thing in China. No honest numbers (statistical data) exists.

    Bad as the USA has become, it’s not this far gone. Yet.
