what a good idea!
I'm thinking of creating a set for my wife to remind her how lucky she is to have me smileysmiley
How hard would it be to select messages on context ... for a few popular apps only.
eg, word is running, select a message about typing skills, ie/firefox/maxthon running, select message about websites.

You crazy little thing, very funny idea  Thmbsup


Suggestion one:

implement an option to test the messages.
Maybe in the CTRL+tray menu => "Test Message ..." .... to load/launch an config file.


Suggestion two:

use an Settings file for to config when what message should appear:


#####################################
Settings.cfi
--------------


RunEverySec=10 'every 10 seconds
reformat
Donate
</>


RunEverySec=300-600  'every 5 till 10 minutes at random
hardware1
</>


RunEverySec=3600  'every hour
Reminder
</>


RunEverySec=60,300,600  'every minute, than in 5min, than in 10min...
...
</>



RunEverySec=86400-90123  'ones a day (at random time after 24 hours)
...
</>


RunOn=1200 'highnoon, to start on an given time
break
</>

RunOn=0900,1200,1500,1800
cuckoo
</>

Thank you...

good idea stefan, i will add to next version.

i also like your idea to be able to set a time for activating; maybe even a day and time for special occasions, just have to come up with good agreement on how to specify it.

do we want to use a single file like Schedule.txt which when in schedule mode would just consist of lines line:
Dialog: reminder.cfg
RunOn: 1200
Dialog: reformat.cfg
RunOn: 2000
etc.

or do we want the time info in each cfg file?

> the time info in each cfg file?...
... is good thinking for the moment... you create your CFG and add the specific time settings.

But if you used to use more CFGs you would be happy to config this at an central point.

Or.. NO, forget this, the time info in each cfg file is pretty good enought!
Just add an Label like "Active=0" for into the CFGs for to disable an single CFG.

there is a problem i think with putting the info in the .cfg files, which is if people share .cfg files they would have to edit them each time to change their scheduled settings..

It's not a bug, it's a feature: so i share the hole settings.

And... who's the diff between edit in the global-setting-file or in the CFG? (OK, Without you got ten CFGs and must open all ten to edit scheduls, hmm, how often happens this?)
