Well, after looking around on my hard drive; I still have it! It is 10
year old OS/2 text mode code for pop-up alarms...  Looking at it, it has
a linked list of data structures that it scans after each alarm
occurrence looking for the min next delta time.  That simple description
is probably more useful than the code, but I can send a Zip to you
privately if you really want it (careful what you ask for)...
