Play the X-FILES theme for your alarm

If you're like me, you get tired of hearing the built-in alarm sounds on the HP 100\ 200LX. I've converted the X-Files theme music to the ALARM .SND sound format, and here is how you can do it also:

  1. 1. Open Memo, start a new document and type the following on one line (don't enter any hard returns):
m1k1t200 v1 o3l8b-o4fe- fa-l2f o3l8b-o4fe-fb-l2f o5l8c+ co4b -a-b-l2f o5l8c+co4b- a-o5co4l2f v3 3l8b-o4fe-fa-l2fo3l8b-o4fe-fb-l2f o5l8c+co4b-a-b-l2f o5l8c+ co4b-a-o5co4l2f l2v0cv3 cecececececececece
  1. You can add more "ce"'s to the end of the line to make the alarm sound longer.
  2. 2. Now save the file as C:\_DAT\ALARM.SND (make sure you save it as an ASCII file).
  3. 3. Now set the alarm beep in the Appointment Book by opening APPT and pressing (ALT) O B to go to the Alarm Beep screen of the Options menu (see screen at the top of this page). Press (ALT) C for custom and that's it.

 Press (MENU) Options Alarm Beep to customize Appointment Book's Alarm

 The music is rather long, but the alarm can be stopped by pressing any key. It actually plays the song twice, first at volume 1 (v1) and then at volume 3 (v3). I use this to wake up without getting a heart attack. Use this alarm at your own risk, if you are not awake by the time the song ends you will probably be very late to work as there is no auto-repeat function.
