Reminder Program


I need to find a program which will light  up and buzz my computer and screen that I have an appointment.
I understand  that outlook has it.   but so frequently it does not catch my attention.
can anyone recommend a program that would make the reminder feature so obvious ?

If you're looking for just something different than Outlook to make it conspicuous, you could consider a program like Desktop-Reminder ( http://www.desktop-reminder.com/en/index.html ).  The functionality is more or less the same as Outlook, but it will give you a different program you may not dismiss as quickly as Outlook.
