Reminder program with alarm

by grandpaw7 / April 11, 2005 5:20 AM PDT

I need a reminder program on my computer which slaps me on the face when it reminds me of something. Since there are none, I want one with an alarm, because I often tend to overlook the MS Works reminder program I use. Google points to a number of these. While I can choose between them by throwing darts, I thought that first I'd see if anyone is acquainted with such a program which they think highly of.

I haven't got a solution for you Grandpaw, but I had a right chuckle reading your posts.

Thank you very much. Happy

My Prodigy Home Page has a calendar. I set it to remind me of birthdays, etc. When the home page opens, the calendar is right up front. I've never missed it yet.

Do you have a calendar on your home page?

I'm trying out one with the kind of nasty alarm I need

I downloaded a couple to try out, but I think the one called AlarmWorks will be the one I will keep. The alarm sounds a little like a firetruck coming through an intersection on a crowded day. That is a bit of an exaggeration, but I thought maybe if I had one that "alarmed" me with some kind of sweet sound, I would just smile and quickly forget about it. And I can make the alarm repeat itself which is good for me, because my memory problem is such that I can focus on something I have to do and thirty minutes later it is nowhere around in my memory.

By the way, I downloaded a couple to try out; oops, I forgot that I already said that.

Fortunately, the doctor said it wasn't alzheimers. He said if it was my memory wouldn't be quite this bad.

I have been using xReminder Pro for many years http://www.xreminder.com/index.html?about&version=4.2
It costs $19.95 but updates are free. It has several alarm sounds with it, but you can use any wave file that you have or can create.

It has a countdown alarm, just in case you need to take that memory pill in 45 minutes.

It is shareware and has, I believe, a free trial.

It has become indespensible for me . . .; when I can remember to use it. I'm a grandpaw, too.
