I would like to be able to setup a reminder 'service' for myself so that I can schedule emails or text messages to be sent to my handheld when I can't get to an ssh client.
Here's my scenario:
It's now noon. I need to give myself a reminder in four hours to pickup milk on the way home from work.
I would like to be able to email a special account I have setup that will dump all messages that are not from "me", and that will take the subject line as a command, and the body as the message.
For example, the following email could be sent:
Subject: at 16:00 txtmobile Body: pickup milk
I'd like to grab that mail, pull the subject apart and hand it to a script that will set an
at job for 16:00 that will call my
txtmobile script with the body contents as the SMS message.
That way I can send myself reminders from work or whereever if I can't get to the calendar function on my phone.
Two questions. First, is it possible? Second, is there a better way to do it?
