Thanks to garyomaha and M., there's a clock in my kitchen which sets itself according to a radio signal from an atomic clock deep in a heavily guarded underground bunker somewhere. It also has an alarm which was defaulted to 6 am.

The good news is I was up.

The bad news is I had no idea what was beeping and why.

Ah, the joys of a new house.

Life is good but busy, I am off to the Bay Area tomorrow.

Aha. Our scheme worked to perfection. Soon Jay will be hearing all sorts of beeps.

Nicely done.

I know nothing at all about those peculiar high-pitched whirring noises in Jay's office. Nothing at all.

You messed with the inscrutable alien story device, didn't you?

I'm exquisitely cruel to my friends. That's why people like me so much!

:D

I'm glad you're ok, btw.
