Progress Bars of Life lets you create a set of custom progress bars that will graphically show the progress towards different events in your life.

You can create as many progress bars as you like, and display them in various ways -- for example, docked to the edge of a screen and always visible, or invisible and shown on command.

Create progress bars that show things like how close you are to the weekend, to your birthday, to your graduation, to your due date, until your death, till the end of the current hour, etc.

Version 2 introduces many small features, but one major feature -- an alert system that features something called a "Zeno Alert". A Zeno Alert configured for an event will pop up reminders at recursive half way point leading up to the event. So an event 10 days away will show an alert at 5 days, 2.5 days, 1.25 days, 12 hours, 6 hours, 3 hours, etc. Useful when you need to be aware/reminded of upcoming events.
