Fight against your forgetfulness with a small bash script!
This script helps you remembering periodical dates like birthdays, (wedding) anniversary or anything like this. All you need is a configured mail server and the BSD tool calendar (most likely installed on your system). Just set up a file with all your important dates (check out syntax restriction in man-page), here is a small example:
Now replace the contents of the variables in the script and create a cronjob that runs the file once a day. So you’ll probably don’t miss further birthdays anymore!
