I create projects (eg, project1, project2, etc) and I need reminders to notify me to check for each project's progress after an amount of specific days from the start of each project.
To give you an example:
On 1/1/2011 I start project1 and I need to be alerted 2, 7, 14, 30 days after the starting date.
On 3/2/2011 I start project2 and I need to be alerted 1, 5, 9, 20 days after the starting date.
I often start projects like project1 (that need reminder every 2,7,14,30 days) and I often start projects like project2 (that need reminder every 1,5,9,20 days), so I basically need to tell the program that I started a project like project1 and it will generate the apropriate reminders (same goes for other project types, like project2, etc)
