A 'Go to work!' reminder script
Authored by: Graff on Mar 12, '04 01:24:07PM

Why not just make an event in iCal that puts up a message and plays a sound when you should leave? Make one for each day of the week that you work and then set them all to repeat weekly. Then you will have an alarm that pops up every day. This alarm will pop up even if you don't have iCal running.

If you want it to say stuff then just make an AppleScript applet with the following script:

say "Time to go to work!" using Victoria

Then set the alarm to open this file.

You have never seen any kind of Unix, haven't you ?!?
min=`date | awk {'print $4'} | cut -d":" -f2`
hour=`date | awk {'print $4'} | cut -d":" -f1`
looks really awful to any Unix geek. If you want to get the hours and minutes with date, use
min=`date +%M`
hour=`date +%H`
