I must admit I didn't check the exchange rate.
The one I linked to is from the same range and is four digit.

China, Germany, UK, USA, UK.
I have seen recently something like: China, Germany, Ukraine, Germany, Ukraine.
They say international logistics is a very hard science so I don't try to get it.

An LP i bought from someone in the UK took over 7 months to arrive. Too bad I couldn't contact the seller because I received a refund and I don't know whether it was the USPS or UK post office is to blame?

I ordered a record from the UK from Hospital Records.

3 weeks later I asked for tracking information since it's usually only 1 week from UK to Canada. They said "must have got lost, we'll resend it". 1 week later and 2 arrive on the same day. Another one arrived the following day! 3 for 1? Ok then.

Yesterday, I got two things in the mail from China.

Tube sockets I ordered on the 25th of October, and 5 relays and sockets I ordered _April_27th!_
If you can't learn to do something well, learn how to enjoy doing it poorly.

I recently bought some jogging bottom trousers.
Sat down to do some soldering and I dropped a blob on my leg.
Nearly hit the ceiling when I jumped as the solder just melted straight through the material onto my leg.

So cotton only now when soldering.

The chinaman who sells goods here is called "Ali- Express" but that name is contrary to what happens after placing an order. It took weeks, sometimes months for the parcel to arrive.
When you forget about the order, just in that moment is appears and says: Well, wasn't that a quick delivery?
