and it looks like the influx of NZHerald viewers has just used up the Google Drive quota of the account that was hosting the warning sound.

PaulBags: Here's two: phone's being used for other purposes (e.g my kitchen clock), and avoiding scheduled tests.

Also, the alerts' format is terrible. It's not a reason to disable, but would like to see it addressed.

 

I can't see why there would ever be a need for scheduled tests.

Ignore all the places regurgitating that option. The presidential status being used over-rides it regardless what it's set to.
