This tiny program was written on a weekend in the fall of 1998 after all conventional means of waking up at a reasonable time were exhausted. The VGA 640x480x16 grayscale mode is used to display huge rotating anti-aliased numeric digits which are designed to be readable to a squinting eye from a distance. RClock Alarm also features a unique numeral morphing mode.
