    My clock stopped but get this...

    I have one of those alarm/radio things which I got from Tesco purely for the DAB features and to have the radio rather than an alarm in the morning.

    Now from time to time the time is an hour out, it has been set manually and seems to update via the radio too.

    Now this morning when I looked at it it was at 2318, me been blurry eyed though nothing off it and put my head down for a few hours. When I finally got up it was still the same (bearing in mind this is 8am) and no radio was on. Once I was up and sorted took a closer look at it and found it had crashed up, anyone else experienced anything like this?

    So you were late for work and blaming it on your tech?

    Restart it, that should help!

    Invest in a wind up clock. I've had mine 45 years and it's still going strong. It's digital too. No radio but a very loud and annoying bell.

    I should say he was late - by about 3 centuries!
