RememberNotes is a freeware utility displaying sticky notes at user-defined moments.
RememberNotes allows a user to store notes and have them popup in dedicated windows
on wanted days.
A note is made of a title, a message, and rules defining when it will have to
The title may be omitted. If you don't add one, RememberNotes will use the date of the
day as title.
You may also ask the programme to add the date of the day next to the title you entered.
Title length is limited to 30 characters (including date-addition symbols, see help).
A message is required. It can be up to about 32000 characters long.
Notes may popup :
-> some precise day ;
-> on a regular basis (Each day, each tuesday, aso.)
-> on a more evolved rythm (for example : each eighth day of the trimester. Or each
month, five days before the end of the month, aso.)
You can also choose to have some notes be automaticaly sent by mail or sent to - and
prepared in - your mail client application.
(Notes automated sending depend on the MAPI compliance of your mail client.)
Any information needed to setup RememberNotes and use it lies into the help file, wich
shipps within the setup file.

RememberNotes is freeware. You can use it and distribute as many copies of it as you want, provided you respect the licence agreement.
Translating RememberNotes :
RememberNotes screens and messages can use any language, provided a translation file
exists. There are two languages actually available : french and english.
If you intend to translate RememberNotes, you will have to :
-> Copy (CTRL+C) one of the "xxx.lng" files found in RememberNotes directory
("français.lng" or "english.lng" for example) ;
-> Rename this copy giving to it the name of the language you are about to write the
translation into ;
-> Open that new file, using a text file editor (Notepad.exe is a good example) of your choice ;
-> Translate the rigth part of each line (the one that follows the "=" sign) ;
(Please keep the first line unchanged : its value must still be " [RmbNLang] ".)
-> Save the result, have a rest, take a beer or something like that : you made a great job...
Let's now try the result : Start RememberNotes (Stop it and start it if it was running). In the
first screen of the parameters tab, the drop-down list should now include the name of your
file (without the ".lng" extention). Select that language, and walk around in the graphical
interface, in order to test it.
-> Once satisfied with your translation, send me a copy of this file, so that i can add it into
RememberNotes distribution, and let other users enjoy it.
-> Don't forget to include :
* your name, or nickname (or whatever you want...) into the line
nfo_translator=YOUR NAME HERE
* a mail or www adress, (or nothing) into the line :
nfo_transMail=PUT YOUR MAIL OR WEB ADRESS HERE
-> Caution : On the course of translating, you may sometimes read this special group of
characters : "%s". Keep it unchanged, as long as such strings of characters are internally
used by RememberNotes to add variable datas into characters strings.
Note to developpers :
RememberNotes is able to work either on its own, or upon request of a third party programme.
You can then freely ditribute it together with your applications, and give your user the possibility to use it (provided you follow the licence agreement)
Instructions to use it (parameters to be sent, aso.) are detailed into RememberNotes' help.
