My objection is that I'm not a webmail person & I have TONS of gmail accounts, not just one.
I've never used their calendar & don't want to start now.
I also have tons of tabs open & if I were to decide to use Google calendar which I think only allows to e-mail, I'd have to make sure that ONE user is open.
Plus I have tons of alerts I get from FB & YT, so adding another alert (if Google Calendar does in fact have an alert) means that I risk either not seeing it b/c the other alerts are there first, OR it not showing up at all b/c my computer has problems & sometimes I get alerts & other times I don't.
If one day it's not open & I have another user open OR, nothing is open, I'll never get the notice.
Very simple & logical.
As for Thunderbird, I believe it does use LIghtning, but I tried to install it once, found it really hard to figure out, so I never used it. I did ask the Mozilla forum once for an add-on & that was all that was recommended.
I want something on my computer so no matter WHAT browser tab or window is open (or not), I'll get the notice.
I didn't see what you mentioned for the sticky program, so I'll go back & look. Thanks
Well, the statement. "Alarms (time based reminders)," suggests a reminder feature is part and parcel of Cloud Sticky Notes.
I really cannot understand your objection to either using the web based interface to something like Google Calendar (or anyone's) or using an e-mail client that has either an integrated calendar or a calendar add in. I don't know of a single one of these that won't provide pop-up reminders that you have to dismiss. It seems that Cloud Sticky Notes does, too.
This is a dirt common feature of any calendar software I've ever used, whether by web interface or client interface. There are scads of options available that work with the Thunderbird e-mail client: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Calendars_-_Thunderbird
Thank you. I will look into this as well.
To contribute, another option to use in Windows 7: Desktop-Reminder: <-snip-> Desktop-Reminder is a FREEWARE task planner for Windows to manage your tasks and other to-dos’ in an easy way. It can start with Windows and list all tasks, which are urgent for the current day. For a task with time of day defined a corresponding alarm message will be shown, when the time comes. <-end snip->
I have installed this program and it worked nicely. The free version has basic features, I found it easy to set up a couple of new tasks and received a pop-up when the reminder came due. You wished for "sound" notification, (as in a ding or such) it appears that without the Pro version, you can enjoy "Yodelayheeho" :-) (Better than nothing!)
This might work for you.
