in plain, clear, understandable English.

2. [Options] [Hide] [Quit]

buttons have text as well as graphic


3. [Options] [Hide] [Quit]

buttons show up BELOW the clock.

(Clock text does NOT move down,

4. [Hide] changes to [Unhide] when

clock is hidden.

5. When clock is hidden hovering

over the clock makes

[Options] [Hide] [Quit]

buttons show up BELOW the clock.

(Clock text does NOT move down,

but stays in same place. Buttons

appear below clock text)

6. Alarms data stored in .INI file as text.

7. Confirm: As soon as a change is made it

is written to the .INI file. This

way if the clock or OS crashes the

configuration will have been


8. Done: Program checks for length of text

at around midnight and adjusts

length of form accordingly.

9. Done? Always on top doesn't work always.

Can this be fixed?

width of form. Button(s) go off the page.

Needs to be fixed.

12. Can't set alarm sound. Can't get alarms to
