I wouldn't be surprised if The Archive Team stepped in to backup everything that's left standing. That's sort of their MO.

This can be $0/month if you host your Sendy install on Heroku instead of DigitalOcean (as I do).

Worth noting that with Amazon SES, if you want to send more than 10,000 emails in a day, you'll need to apply (to Amazon) for approval.

Does hosting on heroku scale well? Have you written on this - would be interested in learning more about your setup.

35 minutes is a stretch. Starting at Penn Station, Google Maps has 52m as the minimum and 1h11m as the max.

And that's from Penn Station. Add the time it takes to get to Penn Station from where you're going, it can easily be between 1h30m and 2h. I did this trip yesterday, and from where I started in Soho until the airport, it was 1h45m.

-----


Sure, but are you going to be able to get to the helipad any quicker than getting to Penn?

-----


There's only one way to find out.

Can't speak for other analytics systems, but this is definitely not the case for Google Analytics (which is what most utm_* parameters are targeting).

Google Analytics' default attribution (outside of Multichannel Funnels) is last touch attribution.

-----


GA is definitely ubiquitous, but people serious about attribution aren't limiting themselves to GA :P

One measure: It's the #1 podcast in iTunes, despite only being around for less than 2 months.

-----


It being new really helps the iTunes rankings.

-----


Such a service exists: https://datacoup.com/

-----


Oh my god, yes, thank you. I spent days trying to remember the URL for that service, I was hoping someone would bring it up in this thread.

I even posted an Ask HN asking if anyone remembered the name: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=8288303

Separately, FullContact API is also another replacement.

-----


No worries. Fullcontact API is not really use friendly compare to stacklead and clearbit (old apihub).

I ran some test on the 3 of them and Stacklead was the one that could usually found the most useful information. Haven't tried Clearbit in the last 2 months though...

-----


Thanks for the recommendation Sylvain! Yes, we've been busy improving our data over the last month. Give it another shot - I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

-----


What don't you find user friendly about FullContact? Would love the feedback. Thanks.

Warning on using their TOS: They include this sentence:

> If you’re actually reading this, here’s a treat. https://wordpress.com/tos/treat/

I failed to notice it (but had Find-and-replaced the domain), and got an agitated email from a user complaining that my "treat" link was broken. Needless to say, I was confused.

-----


That is hilarious. Here's a Google search of all the companies blindly ripping off Wordpress.com's TOS: https://www.google.com/search?rls=en&q=%22If+you%E2%80%99re+...

-----


That's not really how tax incidence works, though. Effects of the tax will be felt by all three at some level.

-----


Presumably, if they wanted to do a web version, they could introduce Safari-only JavaScript APIs for verifying TouchID.

-----


They could use Continuity-type stuff to have you verify the payment from your phone, that's happening in your desktop browser.

-----


Which sort of makes sense with today's announcements, they said they had the ability to now detect between taps and presses with the Apple Watch, that technology seems like it could be easily integrated under a trackpad as-well...

-----


Apple trackpads can already distinguish between a finger touching them and being physically depressed, though I don't know what it has to do with payments.

-----


Thats a very different mechanism.

-----


Of course, but it accomplishes something similar. Also, trackpads already have the two finger tap for additional actions (i.e. right click menu), and I still don't know what this has to do with the topic. :)
