Can I add to that request? - Ive just upgraded to ver2 and forgot I had
knobbled the puzzel on the old version ... so once .3 hits the shr feeds
I will have to spend more time decompiling, figuring out how it works,
kill the puzzel then compile it back up again - painful way to fix what
is to me a major usability problem (I cant see the numbers without
glasses, and of course I am not wearing glasses when the alarm goes off
in the morning :)

Perhaps, make it a configuration option would make good sense then you
can continue torturing those poor souls who like it :)

Its quite a good, reliable program, far better than the basic elementary
alarm and I use it most days more than once.  Good work.
