There is something called "Corkboard" Its a bit like a screensaver, with all sorts of interesting bits and bobs. Search on Google for it. Its free.

Another thing you could consider is a ball-point pen and diary.

Outlook is a Calendar and Time Managerment Feature found as part of the office suite.

www.mycorkboard.com/ this is the link for Corkboard mentioned in a earlier reply.

Try a search at tucows as well. They might have a free or shareware version of something to meet your needs.

For what it's worth I am using Windows 98SE and have MS Works which has a calendar you can fill in and set to alert you for up to a week before the date you want. When you start up the computer the reminder pops up.

Or you could try Sticky Notes www.tech-pro.co.uk

There is a small free no ads program called prorem at
www.download.com that will do the trick. you set the reminders, and it
pops up to tell you when the time comes

If you run ICQ on doze (i assume you are running a version of doze) you might get what you need from the "To do" list functions.

If your running a version of Linux there should be an overwelming list of possibilitys for personal time management.

Personally i find a $10 diary does me for the year!

If you don't like what you may have found I actually created a program that would pop up each time you booted with any alerts. If you want it post your spam box email address appropiately altered so that you don't receive any more spam but I will know.
