“Remind-Me-Please is a freeware reminder program which will give you advance warning of upcoming events, appointments, TV programs, movies, birthdays and so on. Enter one-off or repeating events: daily, weekly, monthly, yearly and specials like ‘Every two weeks from 1/1/2005’ or ‘Third Sunday of each month’. I use this program to remind me about bills. I’ve got it set up so my phone bill repeats every 2 months and gives me 7 days of warnings before it falls due. Same with utility bills, car registration, insurance, etc, etc. Once it’s set up properly it’ll give you a splash screen listing all upcoming events whenever you reboot your computer, followed by a splash screen for items due NOW.”
