Alarm application is a fully featured computerized alarm clock. It has unique interface and is stylish. It is based on my first program that I created in 1984 when I had the great Sinclair Spectrum 48K. That alarm clock was noisy when it was not in action :-). This one is hardly usable as a regular alarm clock. That is because of the noisy fan in the computer, I will never get used to sleep with the computer on ;-). The digits are created from a bitmap taken by a digital camera (the original bitmap from it was quite dirty (because of the JPEG lossy compression)).
This application is not written for any reuse in mind.
It seems that the alarm letters are not clear on some monitors :-(
