I have done something very geeky but may save me future embarrassment.
I used to have a PDA to help me remember things. Trouble was - I forgot to check it when arranging things. I used to have a Smart Phone (a phone with Windows on it) that I used to make notes of events I needed to remember. Again I would forget to check it.
These days I have a paper diary which I use and sometimes check. I have three calendars in Outlook at work but I don't always check them BEFORE I book other things but at least I can set reminders. Neither helps prevent me double booking myself, which is something I'm doing rather a lot of at the moment.
I took the geeky way out of this and have written a small application in C# that pops up when I start my laptop to remind me about things.
It might help remind me of things that are coming up. It might even prevent me from double booking.
Or I might find other ways of ignoring my diary.
