  the ini file. Scroll this document to see how to do that.
* Added calendar window. This window is displayed when the
  mouse pointer is above the Kana Reminder tray icon. By
  default, the calendar is always displayed. If you want to
  not display the calendar, add the following line into ini
  file under [Options]
  replace 0 (zero) with 1 to display it again.
  By default, the display of the calendar is delayed about 1
  second, that is, you need to position your mouse pointer
  at the same place above the tray icon for 1 second before
  the calendar is displayed.
  You can change this delay time by adding the following
  line into ini file under [Options] section:

  closed within about 10 seconds. To change this time, add
  the following line into ini file under [Options] section:
  where the number represent the time passed before the
  calendar window will be closed in second. The above
  example sets the time into 3 s. The accepted values are
  between 0 (zero) and 59 (59 seconds).

  displayed. The Add New Reminder menu is used to add new
  reminder at the selected date. The Date, Time, and Date
  Time submenu are used to copy the selected date and
  current time into clipboard.

  and time format (scroll this document down to get that
  information). The Goto Today menu is used to display the
  current date. To select the date, click the desired date

  action (the default action is executed when you double

  following line into ini file under
  [Options] section:
  where the number represents the index of the popup menu.
  Number 1 represents the Add New Reminder menu, 2
  represents the copy selected date into clipboard in long
  date format menu, 10 represents the copy selected date and
  current time into clipboard in custom format menu.
  The Goto Today menu cannot be selected as default action.
  When you double click the selected date, the default
  action will be performed.
    If you click the button on calendar to change the month
    quickly, the default action may be performed.

* Fixed the caption of the button on triggered reminder
  window. For one time reminder, when the 'Remind again' or
  'Edit' checkbox is unchecked, the caption did not return
  into 'Dismiss'.

  again within' time selection. To do this, add the
  following lines inside [Options] section in ini file:

  5 minutes, 1 = 10 minutes, etc.)

22:06:51 07.07.2003 - Version
* Added setting to position the triggered reminder window on
  screen. Currently, 4 positions are possible. These
  positions define the position of the first triggered
  window on screen. The subsequent windows will be
  positioned next to this window, with priority, first
  in horizontal direction, and then in vertical direction.
  By default, the first window will be positioned on the top
  left of the screen.
  To change this setting, add the following line inside
  [Options] section in ini file:
  you need to change the value of x by:
    1 =  top left
    2 =  top right

  the top right of the window still can be used to close the

* Added two predefined reminder types: weekday and weekend.
  Note: because of this addition, if you have weekly
  reminder type or above, it will be shifted, so please

  you want to customize the weekday and weekend, create the
  following entry inside the [Options] section in ini file:
  where 0 defines a weekend, 1 defines a weekday. The length
  of the sequence of those characters should be 7 (number of
