How about you?
Annually (last year):
Boat maintenance/upgrades €2547, Food €2333, Marina fees (mostly in winter) €1335, Fuel €900, Cruising fees €664, Shorepower €350, Entertainment €240, theoldreader.com subscription €17.
Details vary a lot depending on where we are every year and what exactly breaks on the boat or gets upgraded. That year we anchored in Greece for the summer and spent winter in a Sicilian marina with a good discount.
I have enough solar and batteries on my boat to continually power the ground station, but if I didn’t I’d operate it only when actively using the Internet.
I watched the sv delos video and was like... how do I make this my life?
You are free of course to watch your own children yourself. It is after all, your responsibility.
In general I just don't like subscriptions. I prefer to pay only for things I use.
We're a very cloud-skeptic company making chips and associated software, so the rest of our stuff - Jira, Artifactory, Gerrit, Confluence etc - is all on-prem.
Possibly another (£200/year) in misc stuff (sr.ht, newsblur, bitwarden, todoist, fastmail, etc)
EDIT: I'm only including "work-related" expenses and not things that are pretty common, ISP, utilities, etc. It is debatable if I should include pet insurance, since I WFH and my cats are essential for my work environment :)

I've tried deploying a Nextcloud instance via Docker-Compose to a Free Tier EC2 on AWS and found the CPU to spike randomly to 100% and require a machine restart to free up.
I'm a noob at docker, so it might be a configuration issue on my part, but it's pretty bare and I can't figure out if it's a docker thing or a machine performance thing.
If it's a machine performance thing, I'd be willing to pay to scale up, but I was wondering if I could have your thoughts on this. Thank you.
- traefik as reverse proxy and for https termination
- nextcloud (the apache based container)
- small things if needed
This runs on a 10$/month basic droplet + backup
Now, since my commute is rather short, I would certainly be cheaper off if I just had a subscription pass for my city's local transit and bought train tickets as needed, but it's such a vast quality-of-life improvement to be able to, for instance, decide on Friday to visit my parents for the weekend without any extra hidden costs.
(Caveat: All of this does not apply right now since I'm not entering any vehicles with other people until my vaccination has taken effect. But I'm still renewing my subscription because I already know the date when that happens.)
I know that that's only one thing, but the other similar-sized line items in my ledger are much more mundane (rent, utilities, insurance, and such).
Care to explain how you replaced Google?
We build a service calculating those but have trouble getting the data.
It is more of a nice gimmick for us. Since the pricing changes using Google maps apis is just prohibitively expensive.
There are other companies providing the data but those too are somewhat costly.
Maybe we should use open street map as a data source.
I’d say watch those credit card statements and your password manager for things you don’t need or, at least p, don’t need right now. It adds up to do such an inventory periodically.
It’s really a tool for me to build wealth. I’m in golden handcuffs until I feel like I have full financial independence.
It’s expensive because it comes at the cost of my mental health, which in turn affects every other part of my life.
But I am Providing Service of repairing generators in very cheap rate.

Half decent home internet - $65/mo
Cell phone bill (with my wife's parents) - $140/mo

Only real monthly "subscription" is:
- 15$ monthly "membership fee" for my political party.
- More money from fees = better political campaigns = more voters = larger representation in Parliament/Congress = ability to change the Law(country, county or City wide). This is very rewarding - and much better than just moaning about politicians!
- Large "instant" social network of people who shares the same values as you do! (We have a lot of internal messaging tools and forums.)
- There is a lot of members who are lawyers, doctors, accountants, barbers etc. - so its easy to get some occasional help for free or with discount.
- You can literally change the world. For example you start some loose discussion on Discord or Slack let's say about homeless people: and half year later, after various meetings and internal votes our senators/MPs can actually make such proposal to Parliment/Congress. It is VERY rewarding.
- A lot of introverts inside of party, as it attracts mostly high IQ people, so it is possible to find company to play chess, computers games, board games or real life sports etc.
- You can actually TALK to politicians that you see in TV. Or have beer with them.
- You can argue, or give your own ideas about something - at it WILL be taken in account(internal voting even at lowest levels).
- You can say: "At least I tried to DO something!"
May I ask what the country is? I am guessing that is somewhere in Northern Europe.
That plus ~1k once off home server stuff to go with said static IP. Again not strictly speaking necessary so also a luxury item.
And 50pm is sundry vps and domains etc
Edit. Plus Office365 to provide a TB backup storage and office apps for all fam. About 5 bucks pm which is crazy cheap for 6TB high quality storage

1500 / year in insurance! 500 / year in taxes! Wow ...
I pay $12 / month in car insurance, and $130 / year for registration (taxes).
I'm 27 and to insure a hypothetical 2019 Honda Civic it would cost me $280/mo in NYC.
It was ~$110 to get my license so presumably registration would be similarly very high. It was closer to ~$30 in New Jersey.
My truck is 20 years, though.

The more expensive facility is for making beams of gamma rays. It uses a free electron laser built into a ~1GeV electron storage ring to make ultraviolet laser light in a building-length laser cavity. The laser light then collides directly with an electron bunch and is scattered up to gamma ray energy. It then passes through the laser cavity mirror and on to the target rooms. This is a unique kind of facility because it produces gamma beams with high resolution. It's complimentary to bremstralung gamma beams (often made by shooting electrons directly into a piece of diamond to make them wiggle).
We typically use the gamma rays to study photonuclear reactions. Having an electromagnetic probe instead of another hadron hitting your target allows for alot of simplifications on the theory end and helps theorists to generate testable predictions with less uncertainties attached. It also probes slightly different physics.
