    My good friend, such are the times in which we live that everything will cost us a little more, why only today I found that my Netflix subscription will increase by a whole two English pounds from the very next month! I can tell you, such was the surprise I nearly fell atop my perch!

    Sir, whilst I will not judge your lifestyle choices, if someone does not contribute to the industry that produces entertainment, entertainment will ceae to exist. I chose to contribute where I can to help maintain what is surely a golden era of televisual treats!

    I don't like paying and since I don't like thinking either I won't give you an answer that requires that.

    Instead, I'll list my top-three beverages of choice:
    1. Pepsi Max
    2. Cola Zero
    3. Fanta (not zero)

    A fine choice of beverages, Sir! I must ask though, given your clear proclivity for imbibing sugar-free liquids, why do you not drink Fanta Zero?

    I feel like the Zero just isn't as good. With Pepsi, especially, I feel like the taste is actually better.

    Now, give me your list! :)

    This is why the dedicated servers market is growing faster now. Many realizing that VPS/Cloud instances costs are not the way for everyone. You can do much more with Dedicated Servers integrated with API, companies like HiVelocity with cloud features are peaking ahead: API, Scripts, Terraform.

    You can also see signs of this when you see cloud market companies like Linode and Vultr adding Dedicated Servers.

    You can run your own high availability and save in costs.

    When you consume lots of resources, cloud gets expensive.

    Also the market overall is getting more expensive. Sustainability is preferred over cheap prices.

    My opinion.

    Vultr yes. But linode?

    Oh what a fun little game!

    1. Iced caramel macchiato
    2. Chocolate milk (preferably Shaken Udder Chocolush, but Chocomel will suffice)
    3. A&W Cream Soda

    How do my choice align with your expectations, if indeed you maintained any preconception on the matter?

    Actually, your list is better, I had a very narrow view of only choosing sodas since I'm what's commonly referred to as a "lazy fuck". But your first and second choices definitely trump mine.

    Not too sure about the third one though, haven't seen here.

    It is a beverage that I believe is commonly found only in North America. Whilst I have imported cans of said beverage in the past, it always tastes sweetest when I get to sample it whilst visiting it's country of origin.

    Hetzner is somewhat more expensive but even gives you 20 TB if I remember correctly. Honestly, what DO did offer a few years ago, simple, cheap & easy to use VPS servers for 5 bucks, isn't all that interesting anymore.

    Now it's not 5 but 7, and the rest of the market has gone down a lot since (Hetzner for example).

    Doesn't Vultr even offer much more locations to choose from as well?

    I guess I just don't see the point anymore.

    Got you. I'll go make some hot chocolate now. Thanks for the inspiration.

    How wonderful! With tiny marshmallows and a whipped cream topping?

    I'm just recently an adult in the legal sense, and I live alone in my own apartment. Do you think I've got the planning skills required to have these things available?

    Spoiler: I do not. I usually go to the store for each and every meal.

    So upon your next visit, do obtain some of these fine ingredients to complement your delicious hot chocolate beverage. The marshmallows will stay fluffy and light if kept in an air-tight container, and a can of spray whipped cream will keep for months in the refrigerator, so will be available for some time to come!

    I would be more than happy to share the conversation with everyone, should the other party be equally open to the idea, although I assure you it is a completely cordial and polite, maybe even banal, conversation.
