"Since today is the birthday of both myself and the US President
I thought it apropos to cover a birthday reminder tool for the
Linux operating system. There are a few of these tools but only one
of them really is worth discussing at any length. That tool?
GBirthday. GBirthday is a tool that lives in your notification area
and keeps track of the bithdays in your Evolution contacts or your
Thunderbird/Icebird, Lightning, Sunbird/Iceowl events, even CVS
files or MySQL databases!
"GBirthday is very easy to use and allows you to set up a
blinking reminder that allows you to decide how many days +/- to
continue reminding you that a birthday is either pending or missed.
In this article I am going to show you how to set up and use this
wonderful little tool that will keep you from having friends and
family upset that you missed their special day."
