Try Remind as a command-line iCal replacement

You can also use the Growl Notifier to display simple Remind messages.
In order to communicate between Remind and Growl, you will need a little Perl or Python to pass the messages. Using Python, for example, this gets you started:
  • From the Growl download page, install the Growl 'Application', and the 'Bindings for Growl'
  • Also download the 'Growl Scripts' and install the Python script 'gnotify'
You can then tell Remind to forward MSG reminders to Growl via gnotify, by issuing:

remind '-kgnotify -t Reminder: -m%s &' .reminders

By default, the Growl notifications disappear from the screen after five seconds or so, and are quite easily missed. Look at the Growl Applescript bindings for an example that shows how to make the notifications 'sticky'.
