    According to the gov, FEMA will test its emergency alerts system today around 2:20 eastern time. They have said it will go out to phones and TV's and since I don't trust anything the government says or does, I'm going to shut off my modem and take the battery out of my phone from 2 until 3 ET. Paranoid? No, experienced. They have said you may have to reboot your devices to make them work again.

    Thanks for the warning. I disabled all those pesky alerts on my phone a long time ago but Google keeps f***ing with me and keeps turning them on from time to time (as our overlords, they can do anything they want).
    Let me double-check that the alerts are off. Don't want to go deaf when the thing starts blaring away.
