I'll take "whippersnapper," for sure.
Awww, you're sweet, Burma. To be honest, I'm mostly OK with being all old, I just like to be silly about it. Though I do have the big four-oh coming up this year, so maybe I'll feel more upset after that! Ha.
Hey, BurmaYank, don't make me go sob into my pillow more! I'm not afraid to go that route.
Stop, stop! You're making me blush.
Aw, shucks. :D
Thanks for the comments and suggestions, everyone! You all rock.
No prob, wab95, and thanks! Just be sure that you test that "Out of Office" functionality before you rely on it. I don't have an Exchange account handy to try it out on myself. —Melissa
Thanks, Jay! Well, I tried out a solution, and it seemed to work. If he has any songs on his iOS device that are of the length that he wants the alarm for, then he could set that as the sound. From what I just tested, it'll play the song and then stop. I waited for two minutes afterward, and it didn't start looping the track, so maybe that'll do the trick! —Melissa
Hey ibuck! As far as I know, there's no way to do that within the default Clock app, but if you search the App Store, it looks like there are a few apps that can. I haven't used any of them personally, though, so I don't have any recommendations in that regard. —Melissa
I second the use of CrashPlan and enthusiastically recommend it! My current backup plan is simple…ish. My incremental backups are to a Time Capsule on my home network and to CrashPlan. I do a once-per-week clone backup using Carbon Copy Cloner, another program and developer I think very highly of. My essential work files, like Jeff's, are also stored in Dropbox. OK, maybe it's not so simple. But it keeps me from losing sleep about the safety of my data! —Melissa
