If you want a slightly lighthearted variant, replace the line

echo "notify-send '$MESSAGE' 'Reminder' -u critical" | at $TIME 2>/dev/null

with

xcowsay ${MESSAGE} | at $TIME 2>/dev/null

Same overall effect, but with graphic which pops up at random point on screen.

Good article but... I can't believe that VLCisn't on the list
