My venerable personal reminder package for Macintosh™ computers. Reminds you about important events in your life when you start up your Mac and while you work. Features flexible specification for repeating events, extensive control over appearance and minimal memory requirements. Includes documentation and sample event (occasion) files.
The screen shot on the right should give you an idea of how the Mac OS X version looks. The colors and fonts are what I am using personally at the moment but you have complete freedom to choose your own favorite combinations.
So what’s with the ‘?’ at the end of the name? Well, a long time ago when I first wrote this as a desk accessory I used ‘Remember?’ as the window title because I thought it looked nice and it’s kind of stuck since then.
Version 4.6 is the latest release and requires Mac OS X 10.5 or later. Mac OS X 10.7 “Lion” is supported. Version 4.5 is still available for those using Mac OS 9 or Mac OS X 10.2 through 10.4, as is version 3.4 if you’re using Mac OS 8 or below. The older versions are provided as-is and are no longer actively supported which means no bug fixes or new features. What you got is what you get.
Remember? is a Universal binary as of version 4.6 so it runs natively on both PowerPC and Intel processor based Macs.
The extended calendar year support in version 4.5 required making changes to the internal occasion file format that are potentially not backward compatible with previous versions, in particular occasion files containing events with an explicit year later than 2018 can’t be opened by version 4.3 or older. The upshot is that if you decide to upgrade to version 4.5 or later be sure to upgrade all machines that share the same occasion files.
PLEASE NOTE: This version has not been tested on Mac OS 9 or Mac OS X 10.2 – 10.4.x as I currently have no compatible hardware to test on! If you are using one of these OS versions it would be a Very Good Idea to save backup copies of your occasion files somewhere safe before upgrading to this version in case you run into problems and need to revert to a previous version!
Please send $20 (US) if you decide to continue using it after trying it out for a while. You can pay online via KAGI and they accept all major credit cards. There are no built-in measures to force you to stop using this package other than your own conscience. No additional payment is necessary if you have paid for any previous version of this software.
There seems to be an issue that’s preventing the current version of Speed Download from properly downloading items that have a question mark in their URLs even if it is properly encoded, such as the Remember? 4.6 download at the bottom of this page. I’m trying to work around it but for now you can also download the new version via the following Speed Download compatible direct link:
