Alarm from calendar events

This flow lets you set alarms from your google calendar to remind you of repeating schedules (work or school classes) without the hassle of going through each event individually when the schedule is temporarily stopped (vacation).

I build it to wake me up for work.

The * in event list means "catch all"

Please let me know if there is bad behavior, thanks.

Alternative logics available:
- user can select time instead of hard coded to 18.00
- check hourly instead of daily

To activate, connect the respective blocks

*v10: new flip/flop suspension system. Run the flow again to pause execution, run a third time to resume

*v9: suspension removed, different implementation planned. Switched event storage from name-description-timestamp string match to comparing actual event IDs, that was stupid.

*v8: forgot to subtract midnight timestamp from 'now()' to get the current timestamp for the 60 second "within offset" alarm.

* v7: re-introduced event storage from v5

* v6: cleaned up spaghetti, fixed alert time (12h clock sucks!), alert sound query gated by android version

* v5: now _should_ ignore events already set up, using an atomic variable. automatically clears it, too.

* error fix for v3: offset was time-stamped twice (*60*60 instead of *60)

* duplicate execution disabled, now has suspension system. please copy the flow with import when you need it for several calendars or never use suspension and tick multiple exec in begin block

* alarm sound can be selected, continue after preview - don't select long files (or press the play notification to abort)

* hard coded calendar read time to 1900, every alarm is now added by an uncoupled fork 23:59h before the event (this allows several concurrent events without locking the flow up), legacy function preserved (bottom left corner)

* manager's meeting reminder: at the bottom, connect block #135, delay:1h instead of "time await" beside it to read your calendar every hour. this can be used for shared meeting calendars supervised by employer
