The RTX 2080 is mired at customs so it may be not until next week before tracking shows it is loaded into a rail car headed west. Hopeful there is not any problem with customs clearing my purchase. So far it has been problem free with ex-ming cards but my cynical nature assumes the worst.

I spent the remaining budget for the 2020 on the RTX 2080. More funds for hardware may not be available for several months.

Mail service has been very slow, UPS is also backlogged but the postal service has been impacted heavily in the postal centers. Most likely the whole supply chain is a mess.

Container shipping is a mess in China. With the shutdown, orders from China have dried up and shipping companies boats are parked by the dozen in the Pearl River area from Hong King to Shenzhen.

Because of the shipping problems in China, I have decided to abandon further purchases until 2021 when hopefully a vaccine becomes available and that some sense of normality can return.
