Notes for week 30 of 2021
Short week because of Tour de Family. Taking random easy walks made me plug into the world of Witcher through
Pokemon Go Monster Slayer, an objectively stupid game with nice AR.
- I’ve walked 17 km, rode 12 km and swam 1078 m. I’ve been active for 5.2 hours during 9 activities. This week’s max speed was 39.6 km/
- I’ve learned about ads.txt (and I have no idea why it’s not under
- I think I will give Plausible Analytics a try

Not happy about it as I am crafting my GDPR statement.
Setting up Heroku deployment notifications to Slack required more research than it should. The easiest way seems to be not to do that from Heroku, but from Github and use Github Slackbot for that. The channel subscription than is:
/github subscribe dracidoupe/graveyard deployments
/github unsubscribe dracidoupe/graveyard issues pulls commits
Related to that, deployments are well-exposed via Github API. This leads me to believe that I could finally have a proper conventional deployment changelog for SaaS projects. Sounds like a good side project to me, but I’ll focus on launching Graveyard first as September is close.
I tried to look for alternative to Papertrail, but it seems like it’s still the easiest solution for toy projects on a free plan
My contributors are back 😏
