[geeklog-devel] Calendar Plugin - Recurring Events

Great question - of course it depends on the type of reminder.  For a
notification on login, etc. (user-initiated), it's not bad, but client-side
processing makes something like automated emailed reminders pretty
difficult.  If you had to do it, you could probably do it with a post-back
that flags events that need reminding out to some number of days, or
maintains a "next occurance" field, which works if the user logs in
semi-regularly, but it seems like a bit of a hack to me.  If emailed
reminders are necessary, a different design is probably superior.
