Supermemo comes to mind for a specific need but I was wondering if there was a more general outliner that has the same capability?

I’m not referring to something very advanced. A simple anti-virus like “it’s been 30 days since you last opened the program so maybe you need to update it now?” but more for things like forgetting how to reformat an operating system and refreshing your memory by reading a guide or a program that basically tells you here’s how long you haven’t been adding learning

related task and maybe you should start doing

I think the problem with alarms is that you have to add the time, not the content and most of productivity problems I end up realizing are more disaster related when you let things go instead of time passing by and the flaw with goal trackers is that you end up tracking the program that sets the goals rather than the goals themselves. I have found ways to offset these a bit by mainly adopting a bookmarking mindset to data but if I leave my software for a while and then come back to it, I found I have to reintegrate myself to the mindset I had when I was organizing the contents of that software from when I last modified it.

Copy paste fix:

What OS are you using?  Do you want something web-based and/or cross-platform as well?

First off, sorry for the duplicate thread. New user, there was a delay, I checked my login status and I was logged out and I thought the post didn’t go through.

I prefer cross-platform or any program that can work on a Virtualized Operating System of Windows. Web-based doesn’t hurt either but I find may web-based programs to be more limited.

Thanks for the additional information.  I was not familiar with Supermemo, and after looking at their web site, it seems like the type of program that might take a bit of learning to fully get the concept (well, at lease for me it does).  I was initially going to suggest Toodledo, but I do not believe that it will meet your needs.  I was then going to suggest Alfons Schmidt’s Notebooks for iPad, but I also believe that also would not meet your needs, so I am a bit stumped at the moment.  I am hoping that others may jump in here, because your questions is interesting, and Supermemo has me curious.
