Since my alarm clock broke I've had quite a lot of problems with waking up in the mornings. Because being late from places isn't a good thing I decided to do something about it. So, having a fully working Debian box on my table I decided to use cron and mpg123 to wake me up when needed.

This was a great idea. Instead of manually adjusting the clock every evening, I wrote couple of lines to crontab and my computer now wakes me up at seven, eight or nine depending on day and my schedule. I've never been late since.
