Have you tried making your own code file, like test.dat, and having your app poll that? That way you can test it to your heart's content.

As of now, there are no further System tests planned.

That would be extremely helpful...

Seems to be working for me, but as long as we remain at DEFCON 5, hard to tell how it will react to real-world alert bumps, or how it would react past DEFCON 4, which is as high as it's gone while I've had it installed.

Has it been tested with a test file? Just change the file from code.dat to www.yourserver.com/test.dat and put it through its paces.

Okay, I'll try to get to that next week.
