Just a general FYI. 11/11 is the biggest Chinese shopping holiday that we really don't see much of in the western world.

Good time to get good deals if you guys need anything from over there. I'm going to order some electronic components and little tools.

Thanks for reminding everyone Rivem! Yeah, if you don't order soon receiving your items could take months to get to you. So hurry up! :beer:

Edit: I was referring to the Chinese New Year's, whoops. Still. :D

Haha. Yep. That's a big concern too. May as well get some orders in at a good deal to make sure they're processed and get to you well before then.

Chinese New Year will be a concern in February. ;)

11/11 is Chinese Singles' Day or Guanggun Jie (Chinese: 光棍节; pinyin: Guānggùn Jié; Wade–Giles: Kuang-kun chieh; literally: "bare sticks holiday") is an entertaining festival widespread among young Chinese people,to celebrate the fact that they are proud of being single.
The date, November 11th (11/11), is chosen because the number "1" resembles an individual that is alone.
This festival has become the largest online shopping day in the world,with sales in Alibaba's sites Tmall and Taobao at US$5.8 billion in 2013, US$9.3 billion in 2014, US$14.3 billion in 2015 and over US$17.8 billion in 2016

You're all invited for drinks and a BBQ.

Hi,
I thought that a PSA was a reading for a prostrate exam to to see if its enflamed . Mine so far is below 2 which is awesome your blood test every six months will tell you.
Oh my doctor is Oriental does that count for this thread >??
