I would like to hire you to write a small plugin for Microsoft Outlook 2007, running on Windows 7.
On Windows 7, calendar reminders don't pop up or beep unless your system is focused on Outlook at the time the reminder fires. This is different from previous versions of Outlook & Windows.
This job is pretty simple. Write an plugin that watches my appointment and task reminders. When the reminder fires, pop up the reminder window and play a sound.
The plugin has to work when Outlook is minimized.
The plugin has to work when Outlook is open but I am working in a different window.
You will need Windows 7 and Outlook 2007 to develop this, because the behavior is different from other versions of Windows.
