Is the Boom the kwisatz haderach of alarm clocks? Can it now or will it someday be able to schedule alarms based on dates, such as holidays?

Also how does it handle daylight savings time? Does it just sync with the server every night at 2am?

Thanks for listening!

The alarm code actually supports date-based alarms already (e.g. 07:30 on 28/4/2009). However, there's no ui to manage such alarms. You could probably set them via the CLI, or a future version of SC (or a plugin) could add functionality to do so.

Its clock always comes from the server, it doesn't just merely sync. It will maintain its own time based on the last time it got from the server if the server goes down.

So if your server maintains accurate time through NTP and daylight savings time through its own programs, Boom will have the same accuracy.
