I'm looking for a Calendar/Reminder/PIM application which has a
compact (as in small window) view showing the next 7 days or so.
This is so that I can have it permanently on screen on *all* my
multiple desktop windows along with the clock and the pager.
I *don't* want a current week view, that's pretty useless when you get
to Friday/Saturday. It can be very simple indeed with just a short
line of text (e.g. "Tue 4th - Dentist" or "Thu 19th - PAYE") for each
item, when I want to see details and enter new items I'll bring up the
I currently use ReminderFox in Firefox which works OK'ish but I only
get its reminders on the desktop where I'm running Firefox and the
reminders appear as a 'slider' and then disappear. I'm really after
something which has a list of current reminders permanently on screen.
Most Calendar/PIM apps are characterised for a business user by being
oriented to a display of Monday-Friday and allowing lots of happenings
each day. I want a reminder that just tells me the two or three
things that I have to be aware of in the next seven or ten days.
Can anyone suggest anything that might suit me?
