    Default alarm clock app for desktop

    Outlook is too big and complicated.
    All I need is a little alarm clock to tell me when it's time to stop for lunch
    and when it's almost time to go home.

    I downloaded a free little app today - I've got XP -
    but when I went to open it, it didn't work.
    Anybody know of something that works?

    Do you actually want the clock to "beep" or just a desktop clock to see time better than on this little crappy thingy there in the right bottom corner? o.o

    Here are some clocks. Also here. Pick whatever you like best. Or tell me if you need more. =)
    Rule #1: Driver picks the music. Shotgun shuts his cakehole.

    Again, Demons I get, but people are just crazy.

    ESTP? o.O

    I usually just go into scheduler and set text popups. It's been a while since I last did that though.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    I want one that will hide in my system tray that will play a sound when it's time.
    Like an alarm clock.
    I was hoping for a personal reference from someone who has one they are happy with.
    I did a Google search and found plenty.
    I just thought I'd avoid wasting time by asking if someone already has one they like.

    Cause to tell you the truth, I'm using 2007 and it's a bear to figure out.

    Thanks for the links.
    I saw the one earlier, but I didn't trust it because it's just a collector engine.
    I usually don't trust those.
    I'm taking a look.

    Start > Control Panel > Scheduler

    You can have it open any file or application on your computer at the time you designate.

    Ah great!
    So how would I make it play a sound?
    and pop up a window?

    Start the add new scheduled task wizard, browse for the sound file you want, set the time and that's it. Same thing with any other file you want to run.

    I wonder... might even be able to create a batch file that does both at the same time and have the scheduler start that off.

    I've got one called Chameleon Clock, I don't remember if it's free or not (). Anyway, you should be able to find it. It hides in system tray, you can put MP3's as your alarm signals etc... And it has lots of options. You can make an alarm "daily" or "every tuesday at 12.03" or whatever you want. You can also input text reminders etc.
    Another thing, there is an option that makes the alarm signal play until you shut it off... I find that very useful sometimes. There are also options that makes it shut off when the tune has finished playing, or when it's been played a number of times etc...

    Chameleon Clock. Good shit.

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come
