notification when a long running task completes, such as dns propagation
or a lengthy build:
`./long-running-task; sms "it's done!"'
As a signal user, I'm sold on the idea of abandoning SMS for a better
transport -- I would love to upgrade my script to send signal messages
instead of SMS. I would probably register a googlevoice number and use
signal-cli to do this. However, I wanted to ask a few questions before
exploring that further:
Would signal devs be bothered by a one-off, single-user notification script?
Would signal devs be bothered by a "twilio" type service that sent
one-way notifications over signal and was available to other users via API?
Can OWS prevent or curtail abuse if a signal account is flooding the
network with spam messages?
If signal isn't appropriate for automated notifications, can you suggest
any alternatives to SMS?
Thanks for your time!
