Alarm clock project: landing page

This is a landing page for my alarm clock project. There are three posts on this project, so I though it would be helpful to have one overview page that I can direct people to.

I have a cheap plastic alarm clock that had small buttons, specifically the alarm off button. So I wanted to replace them and mount bigger buttons (I added a big snooze button too). I used Adafruit's small and simple arcade buttons (which I've described in this informative post, in case you want to know about them for your project) and wired them to the button contacts on the inside. I took out the CD player to make room for the buttons cut holes in the top to mount them. It turned out great in the end.
