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 ?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you're looking for just something different than Outlook to make it conspicuous, you could consider a program like Desktop-Reminder ( ).  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.
