I'm afraid the code disappeared with most of my other projects in the Great Grinding Hard Drive Crash. The project itself was pretty simple and shouldn't be hard to reimplement.

I just used a flat text file with lines in the format of "DAY:HH:MM", so for example, "FRI:5:45" for Friday at 5:45 AM. The program ran as in infinite loop, sleeping 45 seconds at a time, then running through and comparing the times in the configuration file to the current time. If it found a match it would jump into playback mode.

In this mode, a file was selected (hardcoded) and the volume reduced to zero. It would also unlink the file ~/.alarm if it existed. The playback loop would then begin, incrementing the volume slowly until either ~/.alarm was created or the volume was at 100% for a full minute. The program would then reset the volumn to a normal level, stop play, and reenter the main loop.

I had an icon on my desktop that ran "touch ~/.alarm", so all that I had to do was turn on the monitor and click on it.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
