Wake me up neo ;)

The alarm clock just survived my real-world test. Precisely 8:30 the
alarm rang but i did not fell like getting up so i hit the snooze
button. Some minutes later my neo insisted and i got up. hurray :) ..
ok so far so good.

Some quick notes (tested on fso milestone 3):
- there is no .desktop file for the alarm. i had to run it from the terminal
- the alarm works even if the neo is powered off. well kind of ;) it
powers the device on. but it wont ring
- some times i got alsa errors. device or resource busy
- alarm has to be running for it to ring
- it could be easier to set up.
- for me it could be harder to shut off the alarm.. maybe some kind of
puzzle? has to be something that the neo can be sure i am awake

Anyway i know this is pre-alpha software so things will be much better
some time soon.
Thanks and keep up the good work
