NES alarm clock; hit Reset to sleep in

An intrepid hacker has turned an otherwise broken NES into this marvelously nerdy alarm clock, garnering the jealous affection of fanboys the world over. It still needs some work--"alarm time and other parameters have to be set by manually shorting Player 1 controller input contacts with wire jumpers"--but he hopes to someday have it controlled with the paddles gamepads.

Ideas: get that Power button to turn the alarm on/off, require the Konami code to shut the alarm off, add in some classic Nintendo alarm tones. Alright... we're nerds.
