Uh... Yep, with the alarm stuff... I lost the file, however, I'll just get

It was more than some weeks ago though... :-)

Well are there any revisions it works perfectly with?
If so then we could just look at the diffs and perhaps track down
errors...?

Yes I will 'forget it' since after reading other posts I don't think I
have much of a chance...

Perhaps I should just stick to voice UI hacks... :-)
I just got to find the time for rockbox though, I have other projects I

So I think it will be a while before I can test and update and then start
coding...
