    Call the color of the DRSA-1600 PINK, and see how "nice" his response is!
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    Sure looks pink to me.

    In 1959, Cuba wanted "CHANGE" too.

    The Grainger catalog is correct that Taiwan is a province of China!
    The PRC and ROC both claim that there is only one China, and Taiwan is part of it, and that they are the only legitimate government of China.
    The PRC is the communist government of mainland China, but doesn't currently control Taiwan.
    The ROC goverment is a democratically elected republic that includes Taiwan and some surrounding islands.

    Clear?


    Sometimes you will see the PRC or ROC as part of, or next to, a "Made in China" label.
    Taiwan(ROC) has tech manufacturing facilities with cleanliness, and working conditions that rival those in the US and Europe.
    Mainland China(PRC) has tech manufacturing facilities that are virtual slave labor sweat shops, often forced labor.
    Keep that in mind when you are stuck with no north American or European manufactured alternatives for something you need to buy.
    I guess we were both right. Cause the last I knew Taiwan was Independent of mainland China. Also was aware of the pissing match for the right of sovereign legitimacy.

    Like I said when I read it was China in Graingers I never checked it out further.

    Guess I'm getting a little apathetic when it comes to East Asian politics.
