Hey Łukasz,

first: you've built a nice gui there :)
But I've got some problem: I'm using Debian (which somehow has an atd on my 
desktop system but I cannot find it in the repositories...) and am happy to 
hear you made a(n?) fso wrapper. Having extracted the binary and initscript 
from the ipkg by hand, I get this message on starting atd:

d-a318:~# DISPLAY=:0 atd /var/spool/at/
Error: Connection ":1.57" is not allowed to own the 
service "org.openmoko.projects.ffalarms.atd" due to security policies in the 
configuration file

[added the DISPLAY-variable because I suspected x forwarding to mess something 
up there]
Which config file do I have to change and what would these changes look like?

I'd be really happy having an actually working alarms app for the Neo, thanks 
for your work! :)
