The roads are passable again. We've got the pail and its unholy contents loaded up and we're heading out to the Farm Colonies. #zompocalypse
09:56 AM #
Specifically, we're going to the Colony's farms farthest to the west where I know my Blackberry is out of range of the primary Anomaly.
09:59 AM #
There's no DARPA relay station there and all the cell towers remain un-powered, so it'll be a good place to test Jason's Mini-Anomaly.

Test...test... Am I being received?
12:01 PM #
Ah, good. This thing works! It's distasteful as all get-out to use & drive around with--it really gives me the heebie-jeebies--but it works!
12:04 PM #
I drove out to where I know I had no bars before and saw that I still had one intermittently. I drove around until reception improved...
12:07 PM #
It turns out that if I take the Mini-Anomaly emanating from Jason's experiment right below a cell phone tower, I get one steady bar...
12:10 PM #
The tower I'm next to is unpowered, so I assume signals are moving from my world to this tower's twin in your world via the Mini-Anomaly.
12:13 PM #
@mattress The possibilities are intriguing!
03:21 PM #
Jason and I are out at the main Farm Colony farms. Time to get Pete up to speed with what we've learned. #zombie #zombies #zompocalypse
05:02 PM #
I checked in with Kurt and May. They're still babysitting the DARPA station. They saw my earlier Tweets when I was out of range!
05:05 PM #
This has important implications for communication: The DARPA monitoring station got my Tweets via towers on the OTHER side of The Anomaly!
05:08 PM #
Theoretically, taking this Mini-Anomaly anywhere in my world where there's a working tower in yours will let my tweets out...and back in.
05:11 PM #
So, not only can I tweet to you from far afield, but anybody we have sitting in the DARPA monitoring station can read them too.

Pete has agreed with my assessment. Henceforth, he's going to have somebody on watch in the DARPA station 24/7. Probably an overdue idea.
