An alarm clock program?
Is there a way to get an alarm clock in Debian distros that opens certain weblinks? I want it to open links to various youtube videos. I've read about this thing called "cron," but I'm not sure if it can do what I want it to do.

Hi - I don't think there's a programme which will do that. I know that an alarm plugin is available for the XMMS media player, but it just plays music to wake you up.I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. - Pablo Picasso

If you are running KDE you can probably use dcop and konqueror. If you use cron to launch a dcop command telling konqueror what page to show it could be done that way.
It would be something like this in your crontab.
dcop konqueror-$(/sbin/pidof konqueror) konqueror-mainwindow#1 openURL www.linuxforums.org/forum
