Thanks for your response. I'm thinking...no, HOPING...it's a bug. Why would anyone want to make an alarm "less alarming?" Because of the nature of the work I do, calendar alarms are a very important feature to me, and I can't afford to miss an important alarm. Having a longer duration alarm is certainly preferable to the brevity that I've regressed to now following the installation of the latest OS. LOL!
