    I want to be reminded to backup my system every Tuesday. What program can I download that would give me a nice reminder each and every Tuesday?

    Don't you have iCal installed?

    Make a weekly repeated task and set it to remind you at the time of your choice...

    But will it remind me even if it's closed?

    Yes.

    Just make sure iCalAlarmSceduler is started on login. Should be done by default. Can be checked in System Preferences -> Accounts -> your account -> Login Items.

    Yes. I have tons of weekly and monthly reminders that are set to email me 5 minutes before the event. That way when Mail checks my email every 5 minutes, I can be sure to get it...
    I usually use it to remind me of after school stuff, TV shows, and changing contacts :eek:.
