Description:

This tiny lightweight script makes amarok beep the Greenwich Time Signal every hour o'clock, plus a reduced version every hour and a half.

The script has no configuration at this stage.

Please take a look at [1] if you don't know what I mean by "Greenwich Time Signal".

v1.2
-----------
* Fixed: xx:30 sound called at xx:00 and viceversa (this is QUALITY, oh yeah!).

v1.1
-----------
* Default player changed to "aplay". If not found, fall to "play".
* Sounds are now in wav format instead of ogg vorbis.
* Instead of starting sounds at xx:00 and xx:30, try to make the long beep go with the xx:00 and xx:30.

sleep 59m

after the wave file will work (if you don't want the half hour signal).

Hi,nice idea.

But isn't it a bit of a waste calling the date function every 0.3 seconds? There should exist methods to set a wake signal for your app, so you can sleep for 59 minutes.
