I am using Emacs 24, but I'm still not sure how how you are using
this. For example, if you'd like to get some reminder if a project is
due in 3 days, how exactly do you set things up?

Do you show the notification just once (but what if I'm not at the
screen what that happens)? Or do you show it periodically until I've
somehow told Emacs that I've seen it?
