[Michiel], unsatisfied by his Phillips wake up light, decided just to make his own. He really wanted programmable weekend alarms as well as an easier to find snooze button. At first, his circuit was not reliable enough, losing several minutes per hour, but he gutted another alarm for the 1Hz crystal. After some carpentry, his final alarm ended up quite nice. After so many aggressive alarm clocks, it’s nice to see that not everyone needs to be assaulted out of bed.
Correction: apparently, there’s no 1Hz crystal. That was a guess on my part. -[Caleb]
