I should've never stopped using Hoptoad.

Man, Exceptional is crap. The only reason I even deployed it for this project is because production is being hosted on Heroku and installing + configuring it was just a click.

Not worth the click, by the way, 'cuz not only does the free plan under deliver, but the premium plan is ridiculously priced compared to Hoptoad. For $10 less you get about 2x more than the equivalent Exceptional plan.

Now my only problem is cajoling clients to set up their own Hoptoad account (I do not like 'owning' accounts that have client data).

Your code is not your product.

Your code is not your product, it will not make money rain from the sky, and letting contractors -- people you're paying -- see it will not be the end of your world.

Twitter was someone's weekend hack that made it big thanks to idea and execution, not the 4 hours someone spent coding it.

Your code is only worth what you paid for it.
