After having forgotten a friend’s birthday, I really need to find a service that’ll email me when it’s close to someone’s birthday.
An easy-enough service you’d think, but it’s fraught with problems. Especially when I want one that’ll let me transfer the data around – the rest are so protective. Plus one that I can trust to actually email me, and ideally one that interfaces with my Nokia phone.
Of those, the first three won’t let me export or send around any data, and I can’t get Mozilla Calendar to send me any emails. At least, not without exporting the data to some weird server I don’t have access to.
None of them will give me a simple calculation (like my old Nokia phone did) to tell me how old someone becomes. My current Nokia phone won’t do that, of course, but nor can it email or tell me in advance when someone’s birthday is.
