View Full Version : PC memo

Sorry about the ambiguous title.

I need something to give me a one-off reminder of a vital appointment I have in January.

I've got an attrocious memory. So I'm looking for something that will pop up on my screen when I boot up on the day reminding me about the appointment. I don't need or want something that runs constantly.

Is there anything in WinXP (Pro) that will do this?

Just make a word document (or similar) with big bold writing stating that you have an appointment today. Save it somewhere then make a Scheduled task and point to this document and schedule it to run on the day you want.
It will then open up on screen.
I just tested this on my PC.

Google calendar, you can set the alam to text your cell phone. (you will need a gmail account for this)
