This self-executing file is something to help you keep track of dates. Street cleaning in front of my house is on the 4th Friday of the month, which has cost me a couple of tickets. I either forget all together, or I get Fridays mixed up and I have long looked for a reminder program that could understand the "4th Friday of every month". I even started looking for one that I could program manually, month by month; but, then I found this program.

All I had to do was "add" an event, and I was given a whole page of options; one time only, weekly, monthly, yearly, or custom. Since I didn't know what the dates would be, I tried custom, and there it was. I gave me a range of dates, [weeks worth] and a list of days of the week. I set it for 21st to 28th, Friday and I've checked ahead a year and the 4th Friday of each month is marked. You also have the option of how many days ahead to be reminded, how many minutes before the event to be reminded and an alarm setting, with several wav files for alarm noises.

It also keeps track of holidays and such both by an add-on list, [which includes both daylight savings days with the direction to set the clock] and the option to add you own special days. When you set it to hide upon opening, it makes a tiny icon by the clock on the taskbar, and its always ready to pop up at a touch to help with whatever you need reminded.
