my wife wanted my newly beloved, cherished, worshiped, admired, dribbled over and fingerprint covered iphone 4 to fly this morning. the alarm is the loudest, second world war, american missiles are coming type siren … blarmp, blarmp, blarmp etc, at the loudest setting a human could manage to cope with. now i think it’s great, it powers me out of bed with a vitality normally deserved for a frisky 20 year old, in fact if i was in bed with one, i’d be frisky as well. ( i probably wouldn’t get out of bed, but i’d want to be awake !! )
any-who, the whole alarm nightmare, or indeed wakeup-mare, seemed to be tied to the continuing, yet rather strange thing that is apple and it’s software. the daylight saving change to timezones in australia seems to have upset my alarms setting. it apparently runs off one clock, thinks with another and then ignores the time.
if you set brisbane time, you’d suspect ( stupid boy ) that it will keep that time and allow the alarm to raise hell when it’s asked to. this morning, ( i still can’t find and answer for this ) being set for 06.00 it screamed at 04.00, then once we’d both got back to sleep, ( me nodding off while listening to my brides dismay at this turn of events ) again at 05.00 and then the final insult to my marriage and well being, it failed to go off at the set time of 06.00. nothing, not even a fart, and normally that’s the first thing to get going in the morning.
tbaoo takes great pride in finding out facts for you dear reader. this time though, complete failure, as this is the best i can find, and no clear response from apple:
it seems that if you undo the repeated action ( i.e. the days you want to wake up ) exactly what you would want from an alarm clock, and then remember to reset it every night prior to going to bed with your sweetheart, “your safe”, you’ll be rudely awakened as you wish, without problems .. i’ll set it and see, stay tuned, listen and look out for my flying iphone 4.
