Never forgetting those birthdays again...

As I keep forgetting important dates over and over again I came up with a crude perl script. Maybe you will find this useful. The birthday file syntax looks like:

$ cat .birthdays
# This is a birthday files
# lines beginning with a pound sign '#' are ignored
# The format for this file is as follows
# birthday date |Year of birth| Name | warn this early in days
# Example
# 1. October|1932|Grandma|5
# Means: Warn me 5 days before Grandma's birthday on 1st of October.
