Episode 40 - My Suit Wouldn't Be Pressed As Well Without RADAR

Hey we've hit 40!  Now the podcast will buy a Corvette and think about a career change or something.  At this rate we'll hit 100 before the next Olympics!

Ken and I got into it tonight about the recent tests (that failed in Quebec, and maybe got a C- in Ontario) of the Alert Ready system.  As a very rough rule, it seems that people on Rogers and Shaw or MVNOs of theirs got the alerts whereas people on Bell and Telus did not.  (It isn't quite that simple, but hey, who reads these things anyway?)  Now, it must be said that later in the week, maybe Monday of this week, there was an Amber Alert sent out via Alert Ready and it worked.a

This led us (I think, look, I'm writing this before Ken comes over, hell, maybe we won't record tonight, or maybe he won't even come over, you just never know, it is a crap shoot really, but I like to live on the edge) to talk about warning for things like Pearl Harbour, and apocraphyl stories about 9/11 and Coventry.

Really, warning signals are a big thing, we talked the DEW line, The Battle of Britain and eventually got to my dentist.

Enjoy!
