Motorola E6 Alarm Clock Bug
If you are using the Motorola E6 as I am, by now, you would have found out that the Alarm clock has a mind of its own. It will work only when it wants to.
Well, after spending sometime fiddling with it, I have narrowed down a way to make sure that it works fairly consistently. It is quite simple. First set the time that you want the alarm to work, and enable it. Save it. Then, once you do it, disable and enable the alarm clock. Save it again.
Simple. It works consistently if you follow this approach.
I think the bug is simply because the monkey that coded the alarm clock forgot that this program should actually be a real time deamon, and not a statically activated one. Anyway, I shall try to see if I can get sometime to write a new one. After all, as long as it runs Linux, anything is possible on it.
