Big NKS Fan !
Not suggesting__ "misery loves company" __ but experienced exactly what you posted …. not so long ago.Oh my gosh, 500 US for Met Ark 1 and 2? I just paid over 700 two months ago...no way I could have foreseen this. Bumming.
Jumped at almost every 'deal' running every few days in Dec (noted source) and then Jan, a big blast over at NI for everything _ $200. less.
Each purchaser doesn't really care if it's few days, or few months ….. just not cool
Hang in there. More of this likely coming and you can hopefully be on the other side.
