I am writing an online task scheduler in ASP having a oracle 8.0 as database. The user can enter his tasks either pending or completed with start date, due date , also start time and duetime. There will be thousand users having hundreds of tasks scheduled. Now my problem is fifteen minutes prior to the scheduled task the user should get a reminder of his scheduled one in the form of email to his account which can be handled easily, but the other way he has to get a popup of his reminder task on the screen if he logs in. I don&#039t want a backend daemon process running. <BR>How can this be achieved in ASP?
