Updating custom alert fields using subscriptions and powershell

Alerts in OpsMgr have lots of good information on them already – but wouldn’t it be cool if you could add your own custom information to the custom alert fields of the alert?  There are lots of reasons why this might be useful – you might just want to add extra information to an alert…
