New medicines that i could maybe take that have minimal side effects are priced at 100 dollars per pill. Thats how they can build those 500.000.000 dollar private boats.

Server's going up by about £6 p/m
Water's up £8 p/m
Cable's about to go up £9 p/m
Food shopping is astronomical.
And the April Gas/Electric hike is looming.

But, hey, at least my disability allowance hasn't gone up, so that ok.

My disability income got raised by 10%. Rent and healthcare support was raised by about +50 euro a month as extra inflation compensation. Rent is said to be lowered this June with a net plus for me by about +30 euro's a month.
I can stil not afford things like vacations or let alone a regular dental visits. But I can make ends meet and save for bad times.

My shoes are I think 6 years old now though

Wow, what shoes do you were? I'm lucky if I can get my shoes to last 6 months.

I've had to unfollow someone i know on FB who's mentality about people 'getting free stuff' like benefits, even disability benefits, is perversely sick.

The thing they seem blind to is one day they may be in the situation where they'll need help, where their health isn't perfect. No compassion or consideration, just stuck on the 'what other people get mentality. Sorry, rant over.

Disability or not, it's only going to get worse from here on.

The dreaded gas/electric hike is coming, and as much as I'd love to say Linode's Price Hike is "Just a shitty company coming in and raising prices for no good reason except profits", I also am very aware that everything else is going up. Might be more a case of promising no price hike, without properly planning ahead.

Does that make it any better? Does it hell. Especially when they stated repeatedly that price hikes weren't going to happen.
And yet here we are.

Get used to paying more, guys.

£19.99 monthly subscription for SoCoder Ticks, anyone!?

If it helps, I'm currently with a small UK hosting company called Prostack.

They've proven to be reliable and speedy when it comes to support, but I don't know how well they compare when it comes to pricing. Linky here: https://prostack.uk/

Their shared hosting plans are reasonable but is this the price of dedicated server plans now? It's been over a decade since I last looked as it's not something I've needed but ouch

I guess "fully managed" comes at a bit of a premium, andy
