If you are interested in looking at it you can download it from http://www.kirbyfooty.com/kirbyalarmbeta.zip
To install it just do the following...
(1) Exit kirby alarm. To exit kirby alarm just right click on the icon (the small brown football next to your clock), then select exit.
(2) Download the new version.
