leave - remind you when you have to leave
leave waits until the specified time (within the next 12 hours), then
reminds you that you have to leave by writing to the TTY that you
executed leave on.
You are reminded 5 minutes and 1 minute before the actual time, at the
time, and every minute thereafter. When you log off, leave exits just
before it would have printed the next message.
hhmm The time of day is in the form hhmm where hh is a time in hours (on
a 12 or 24 hour clock), and mm are minutes.
However, all times are converted to a 12 hour clock, and assumed to
be in the next 12 hours. An attempt to set an alarm for farther
into the future will be truncated to within the next 12 hours.
+ If the time is preceded by ‘+’, the alarm will go off in hours and
minutes from the current time.
If no argument is given, leave prompts with "When do you have to leave?"
A reply of newline causes leave to exit, otherwise the reply is assumed
to be a time. This form is suitable for inclusion in a ~/.login or
calendar(1), csh(1), sh(1)

minimized or obscured.
This all begs for a more general user notifications system to be
