Thanks for your reply.
Did you ever find yourself in a rush to meet a deadline from one of your third parties?

No, fortunately not. Generally speaking most of our client work is self contained and doesn't depend on 3rd party data sources or hosting approaches like Heroku. And when it has, it has been a short-lived project that was probably done by the time the problem hit.

Sometimes we make internal projects that might rely more heavily on third parties because those projects have budgets of $0 so the cheaper the better, and we just note that (for instance) our Google Trends display has started to act wonky and get around to fixing it sometime down the road.
