    Default Alarmed!

    Hey guys, does anyone know where I could track down a decent linux alarm clock (reliable preferably :P ), for use with ubuntu, that can utilise mp3s\oggs?

    Each night I used to just work out how long it was roughly until the time I wanted to wake up, then use:
    sleep 28800 && mpg123 filename.mp3

    Crude, easy enough
    My wake-time changed daily, so yeah ...
    I mostly do Bitcoin & DigiByte things these days, feel free to say hi on Twitter: https://twitter.com/dgb_chilling
