Web site Mac OS X Hints has posted an interesting shell script designed to let you set wake up calls and reminders from Skype to your cell phone; Lifehacker reader Debashis also suggests using a batch script with the following command for Windows users:
"c:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\skype.exe /callto:001xxxxxxxxxx"
I’m a big fan of the phone call/page as reminder, but I’ve been using Google Calendar for that functionality because, frankly, I love Google Calendar. However, if you don’t, and limited alarms on your phone mean that you can’t set up as many reminders as you’d like, these little Skype reminder scripts could offer a simple way to schedule quick wake up calls and reminders. Thanks Debashis!
