Karl's Alarm Clock was designed to give you a wide selection of options when using the alarm. The clock is set automatically with the clock on your computer. There are ten alarm settings for versatility.

The best view is for your screen display to be set at 800 x 600 and your Browser Text Size set to Medium.

Karl's Alarm Clock works with Microsoft Internet Explorer Version 5.5


Notice:     Karl's Alarm Clock will not work if it is minimized.

When setting the alarm, you can set one or more options. There is an extensive help file that gives you information on each control simply by letting the mouse roll over the control.

When using more than one control to set the alarm, it may not go off. An example would be setting the Month to February and the Date to 30. There is no February 30, so the alarm will never ring. If you set the Date for 3 and the Day for Saturday, it won't ring until September 3, 2005 because that uis the first time when the Date will fall on a Saturday.

On the top of the page you will find the words "Welcome to Karl's Alarm Clock". These words will take you quickly to different places on the web page.

Saving Karl's Alarm Clock to your computer

You can save the file using the Save As: command from the file menu. When you do, the default sound files will not work unless you are connected to the Internet. If you want to use you own sound files, the easiest way is to save the sound files in the same folder with Karl's Alarm Clock. Then type the sound files name, including the extension, into the Sound File Path text box and it should work. You must save Karl's Alarm Clock to your own computer first. If you know how to work with HTML files, from Internet Explorer click View > Source to see the code. Look for the lines around the 182 down where it says
var Alarm1Path = "http://www.kgarlick.com/karl/javascript/Clock/Love Lifted Me.mid"
Change the path between the quotes to the path of your sound file. If you use the full path (starting with C:\...) you'll be able to run the Karl's Alarm Clock from any place on your computer. Then save that file on your computer as "KarlsAlarmClock.html" including the quotes. If you mess it up you can always download it again.
