I second that, with the exception that I use something else this way (I
cannot tell what on this list;-)), and one of the reminders in
that-other-thing is "check the agenda for today before 12:00 am" (and
I usually do it much earlier).  As soon as I find some time to integrate
this-other-thing with Org-mode, I might as well go the
check-the-agenda-every-hour route.

I used to do that, too, but (1) sometimes I started Emacs when
e.g. making a presentation and having my laptop attached to an overhead
projector and (2) some time ago I almost stopped "restarting Emacs",
I just have it open all the time (well, I /did/ restart it sometimes,
say, once a week or two).
