This has got to be the saddest statement of our society, the fact that
the legal department has to check on it.  A simple alarm function, for
the love of god that sucks.  "Yup we want to release a new clock but we

has been around for hundreds of years but.."

"Ban Software Patents" is the only response I can think of.
