Meeting Reminder Ball

An annoying but effective meeting reminder that ensures you will never miss a meeting.


Problem:

  1. As a Business Professional I need an effective way to remember when I have an upcoming meeting.
  2. Outlook's Meeting reminders are not obtrusive or annoying enough for me to be able to remember I have a meeting.

Solution:

  1. With the usage of some simple vba scripting and execution of an executable, I can have an annoying ball bounce around the screen any time a Outlook reminder pops up.

Features:

  • Annoying ball that bouces around the screen:
    • Image is customizable
    • Ball is clickable and can be flung/thrown
    • On launch of the executable it looks to see if there are any other instances and kills them before launching itself

Step 2: Move the Downloaded Executable to somewhere semi-permanent (its own folder somewhere) or easy to find on your machine (not the downloads folder).
