Re: Non-startup auto-reminder from calendar?

Thank you both for the help.  However, I still cannot get effective,
automatic execution of the diary reading, which is required to set the
automatic display of appointment notifications.

I hibernate my computer at midnight, so Emacs does not have a chance
to run the midnight function at midnight.  I tried setting the time
delay on the midnight function to delay to a time when my computer is
usually on (9:00 a.m.), and made sure to set and save the option for
now and future sessions (even reloaded .emacs into a buffer and eval'd
it), but no luck.  It seemed like the update-my-calendar function is
nice, so I put that in and used the customize feature to hook it in.
I've learned to just use the Customize Utility whenever possible.

Anyhow, just search on 'diary' and 'midnight' below and you will see
the relevant code.  It seems like if I can just get the midnight
function to run when my machine is actually on, there will be a
functional appointment reminder utility.

Thank you in advance.

away from old, crusty

that I ever was able
;;                 to get a reasonable return on the investment of my
time put into setting
;;                 up my Emacs configurations was by borrowing code
snippets from others.
;;                 It is true that no '.emacs' file should be used
uncritically, by newbie or
;;                 by others.  
;;                 However, for the best user base, new users should
be able to
;;                 fairly easily clip out sections of '.emacs' files
that interest them and put
;;                 them to use right away in their own '.emacs' files.
 To this end, I have
;;                 attempted to effectively segment the various
independent components of this
;;                 '.emacs' file and have documented what I have done
as clearly as possible.
;;                 It's very exciting how Emacs modes related to
software engineering for the
