  1. If Heroku asks you about billing like this:

    $ heroku scale web=0 clock=1 —app=gravity-clock
    Scaling clock processes… This action will cause your account to be billed at the end of the month
    For more information, see http://docs.heroku.com/billing
    Are you sure you want to do this? (y/n) n

    Try setting all to 0 first:

    $ heroku scale web=0 worker=0 clock=0 —app=gravity-clock
    Scaling clock processes… done, now running 0
    Scaling web processes… done, now running 0
    Scaling worker processes… done, now running 0

    then:

    $ heroku scale web=0 worker=0 clock=1 —app=gravity-clock
    Scaling clock processes… done, now running 1
    Scaling web processes… done, now running 0
    Scaling worker processes… done, now running 0

    Enjoy! =)
