Washington State Cannot use AliExpress/Alibaba

Tried to purchase an 74HCxx IC kit from AliExpress today. Worked right to the point of making the actual purchase and it choked with a message along the lines “We cannot ship to your region”.

A little research shows the Wonderful State of Washington will not allow AliExpress to do business in this state due to escrow issues. No other state has an issue.

    Wow. That’s serious suckage.

    I guess it’s time to move then?

    🙂 For that and several other reasons. But I guess family will keep me here.
