How can I learn about Remind?

  • The definitive reference is Remind's manpage. You can probably access it on your system by executing man remind at the terminal, or just look it up online.
  • David Skoll, the creator of Remind, wrote an introduction for the Linux Journal.
  • Mike Harris provided an OS X-oriented overview right here on 43 Folders.


I have a recurring reminder. How can I cancel it on one or more dates?

Assuming you don't want to cancel every reminder on that date, you probably want to isolate the reminder in it's own "omit context," like so:

PUSH
   OMIT Mar 16 2006
   OMIT Mar 30 2006
   REM Thu SKIP MSG poker game tonight
POP

The SKIP keyword is necessary to cause the reminder to be skipped.
