When you run this program you get a 2" by 2" window containing the current month. It has arrows for changing the month. There is configure menu which lets you configure reminders, deletions, color, and fonts. Also there is a help menu which you shouldn't have to use.

Overall this program is very easy to use just click a day, click beside the time (30 minute intervals) and type in what you need to remember. You can use the repeat feature for recurring entries. Reminders containing the text you entered for that time will pop up on your screen at the appointed time. You can turn the reminders on or off or configure them to pop up early (in minutes). It will automatically delete old entries. You configure how long you want to keep the old entries (in months).

The only thing I did not like about this program is the inability to minimize it to the system tray. You can minimize it to your task bar though. You purchase this program by sending $10 US or $13 Canadian (cheque only) to a Canadian address found in help. They will then send you the commercial version and a password to unzip it via email or for $5 more they will send it via snail mail. Shareware version expires in October.

Enhancements in 2.0 include: ability to minimize to the icon tray; a count-down timer function; a backup and restore function; improved installation; quick-help feature; easier to use and access Week and Year views; saving/restoring of window postions and many others.
