Yes I am quite attached to the puzzle it is there since the beginning
:). BUT: it is there for the particular purpose to avoid accidental
turning off of the alarm. And now Elementary  comes with the widget
that plays that rule well enough -- slider -- without the annoyance of
the puzzle (yes, I say it too).
v0.3 adds the acknowledge window that displays after the puzzle, and
consider merging the two into one acknowledge window with two sliders:
* first one to turn off the alarm sound (when it is loud you want to
turn of this first and not read the message), then
* the second to acknowledge you read the alarm message (this will appear
if you slide the first one).
What do you think of such interface?
 ffalarms was up to 0.2.2 an Edje interface because this way it was
running well on 2008.12, which was much used at the beginning of 2009.
