Binary package “grandfatherclock” in ubuntu maverick

a clock that tolls time acoustically

 grandfatherclock plays audio files to report the time.
 The default configuration emulates a grandfather clock
 with Westminster chimes. Cuckoo clock and Close Encounters
 of the Third Kind files are included as well.
 As a matter of fact, grandfatherclock can be configured to
 execute any command. The upstream default is simply to write
 a *.au file to a sound device file by using cat(1).
 Since cat is not a good sound player, the default is changed
 to use sox instead. grandfatherclock depends on sox to ensure
 that it can run under the default configuration. You also need
 a kernel support for a sound device to use grandfatherclock.
