I was waiting for it to happen and it happened at 14:59 and I was waiting for 15:00 so it gave a major shock when I was at my desk revising :smile:

I got it at 14:59 and I forgot it was happening so I practically jumped out of my skin when it happened.
completely forgot it was happening, have to say the sound is pretty effective for its purpose!

Maybe it was to shock people even more so people realise how effective it is?

Not sure why, but quite a few people I know also didn't get it (coincidentally we're all on Three, but I don't know if that affects it)
