I love this software. I've been using it for two days now and it's perfect for my simple needs. I'm a housewife who needs a reminder to do something here and there. I just click on it and it reminds me. If I'm busy, I can tell it to remind me later. Thank you GOTD!! Good job!

Pardon my ignorance but if I run a full backup of the 84 gb I have on my C drive. Where is the data stored ? On CD-Rs or ? Wouldn't that take an unbelievable amount. I have vista ultimate...do I use Windows PE ? Could somebody break down the operation
and steps that I need to do for the back up. Or is it listed somewhere in the program

Much appreciated,
Joel S.

Thanks for all of your suggestions.

UK's Calendar is the closest to 'my dream' (I will send a couple of suggestions to the author).

Like #10 I can hardly believe that it doesn't carry scheduling options like Second Wednesday, Last Monday, etc. The ultra simple settings make this little better than a toy. Very paris-hilton: a good look, but as useful as tits on a bull.

I'll give it a few days then, if no correction/change, I'll attempt to remove it and its 4000 registry entries.. =8-0

Well, I understand the System Tray (now Notification Area) but on this Vista Ultimate as admin there's nothing visible. It is running as a process - but how to get at it? Authors?

Yep, Katb63, Clocx is great. Ultra feint, and it isn't there unless you want to notice it.

How can comment No.8 be marked as +31, comment No 5 +17, No 53 +3, 59 -1?

Same thing as happened with the earlier offer of v. 2.00: when it tries to run, I get a box which says

Run-time error '3187':

The Microsoft Jet database engine stopped the process because you and another user are attempting to change the same data at the same time.

and goes on for several lines of information which most noticeably does NOT give me any information about what program it's conflicting with . . .

OK, let's write a list of all the thousands of programs of this type. Who cares? This is silly. Who wants to download freeware they goes to freeware sites. Those who are interested in what the GOTD offered they stay here and be pleased by the free license.

Re: #18 Rob,

I see you've been given plenty of options but here's my favorite and it's everything you've ask for as far as I can tell. It's free, as simple or as complex as you want to make it and has always been wonderfully reliable. I even use it as an alarm clock as my son took mine when he moved out and it's never let me down.

Reminder Commander is a Visual Basic program with a very easy to use, simple-looking interface. I think it’s simplicity is its strength - you don’t get powerful features you’d find elsewhere, but you’re not bogged down reading help files and trying to figure things out either. It just sits in your system tray waiting either for you to add a reminder, or until it’s time to remind you of whatever, & if you want it can remind you via email.

For those careful about what they add to their PC, installation adds a whopping 4,980 registry entries according to InstallWatch Pro 2.5c. Setup adds 5 files to the Windows’ System32 folder, and most of those registry entries have to do with 4 of those files... They’re Codejock .OCX files - Codejock is a company you can find on the web that sells pre-packaged code to make a programmer’s job easier. The remaining file (“MSWINSCK.OCX”) is from Microsoft, & is used by Visual Basic 6 programs to connect on-line.

Activation as usual enters the program’s key in your Registry - this time you’ll find it under VB and VBA Program Settings in HKCU\Software.

34-Manoj and 47-UK Mike - Agree, UK's Kalender is awesome. It's not pretty, but it's only 892KB (yes, that's eight hundred and ninety-two KB, i.e., less than one megabyte) and it runs from whatever folder you put it in - no messing with the registry - so you can also use it with a USB stick if you want (be sure to get the "no install" zipped version and also download the help manual). And it's networkable.

18-Rob and 20-tmay99 - Do take a look at UK's Kalender, http://freenet-homepage.de/ukrebs/. Check out the features page.

37-AlexSJ: "a calendar, a print function (showing your daily or weekly tasks), recurring that occurs say every Monday and Wednesday in one task" - With UK's Kalender, you can set something to occur every Monday, Thursday and Friday, for example, and only in the months you choose; just tick the options you want. Plus you can set it as a template for a certain type of event, and even color-code it.

Ulrich Krebs really has paid back the debt he feel he owes to the freeware community: "I benefit from the freeware scene for years now and most of the software on my system is freeware (which is often better than commercial software). So I wanted to give something back to the freeware scene and wrote this little program, which you can download here as unlimited freeware."

Everybody will have a reminder on their mobile phone!

I despise cell phones and do not have one.

*Just cos it’s free does’nt mean you have to lie about how useful a program is*

And just because you don't like a program doesn't mean you have to belittle it and the people that use it. Some people will find this useful. Just because other people don't does not mean it's a wasteful program.

I installed this program and it wouldn't open at all. I normally don't have problems with anything so this was a bit of a suprise. I run XP by the way. So I decided to uninstall and it wouldn't let me. My system kept telling me it was running and I had to turn it off first, but wait, it wasn't running, so now what? What a pain it was to uninstall all the components, restart my computer and so on. I finally got rid of at least what I could see but I have this nasty nagging thought it's still in there hiding in some dark corner. Any thoughts or helps would be appreciated. Debbie Gibson

Simply wasteful program.

Chances are if your battery goes flat, you won't be at your PC to pull a reminder from that.

I've noticed recently the comments left here don't match the thumbs up/down...I'm guessing this is the usual GOTD supporters marking honest comments as "/Did you find the Comments Useful? "...NO!

*Just cos it's free does'nt mean you have to lie about how useful a program is*

@18
Try Rainlendar Rob, as suggested by Kristine (16) Pretty much does what ur asking for I think & a little more. Transparency for desktop view and variety of downloadable skins. Free & paid versions,but I personally find the free version more than adequate. Way superior to reminder commander.

#18 & 20 suggest you look at Rainlander as suggested by #16, does just about everything you asked for, and it is free. I have used Rainlander for quite some time and think it very handy and easy to use. I checked out todays giveaway this but does even come close to the convince of Rainlander in my opinion.

Palm Desktop does everything this does - and it's free. Even if you don't have a Palm device, the software is useful.

And if you use Firefox, there's always ReminderFox.

GOTD, thanks for all you do. Even if I can't find a use for the day's software, you still come through on occasion with awesome software. Keep it up.

This app won't be for me and for those looking for an alternative, check out http://www.exstora.com/organizer-software-screenshots.html
They have a free light version. Still, I bought the pro version just recently, because I really like the freshly added sliding Planner. It's like a minuture Gantt and shows only those task coming up for the selected dates.

Adding new tasks in Reminder Commander is simple, just find the icon in the system tray, right click. It does have all the options to configure the reminders and even let's you e-mail them to you.

But it's the things that are not there that I would be missing: a calendar, a print function (showing your daily or weekly tasks), recurring that occurs say every Monday and Wednesday in one task.

Greetings, AlexSJ

Email reminders

Email reminders can be created if you are going to be away from the computer and do not want to miss an important event. These reminders can be read later via a mobile phone that is capable of receiving email, PDA or pager.

This installed cleanly. Memory usage is somewhat heavy for what it does, but similar to other Visual Basic apps. I disagree with #5, kez, adding a new reminder is extremely easy. As others have stated, there are endless options for reminders, from phones; web services; calendar, reminder, to-do, PIM, and project management software, etc. Vista (at least some versions) has Windows Calendar. Windows has Scheduled Tasks (more sophisticated on Vista). Rainlendar, as #16, Kristine, mentioned, is popular, although I find it to be somewhat quirky. #10, Rudder, Individual Software AnyTime Organizer Deluxe 12.2 (commercial) is very strong on repetitive task scheduling. PIMs are far too complex to review briefly, download a trial and study them carefully. AnyTime is strong on quick view changes, printing, and customization, weak on synchronization, and no sub-tasks.

THANK YOU G.A.O.T.D for all the software that you bring us, both for the ones that I use AND the ones that I don't.
YOU provide a great service for us to try out software and evaluate it's use.
I would like to see more objective comments made good or bad by reviewers. So many comments are simply negative for it's own sake, it is very easy to criticise -- not always so easy TO DO. REMEMBER this is a FREE service. If YOU don't like it, maybe someone else will, so leave an objective comment. In the cases of not being able to load the software MOST times it can be solved by, as we say at the lab, RTFB or in this case I
I do not think it very good manners to criticise and compare today's offering with software offered by others, if that is what you really want to do set up your own comparison site.
Thanks again GAOTD keep up the good work

I use "SmartToDo" a simple freebie I got here some months ago. I agree with #1. I would rather have a cellphone reminder, so I can take care of business before I get home. Guess I will pass on this one today. Cant imagine it doing better than SmartToDo, which is a pretty good program, easy to use.

One thing we all like about todays giveaway is that it is NOT another screensaver!!
