In a similar vein, I've coded something for Windows. It's an interactive
function currently called "my-org-update-desktop-from-agenda". It takes
the current week's agenda view and sets it as the desktop's wallpaper.
Not an alert, but it keeps your workload forever in front of you.

It needs a couple of functions defined in .emacs and a windows
executable (90KB) that I've written which updates the desktop wallpaper
from an html file.

The wallpaper will look exactly the same as the agenda view you'd
normally see within org-mode. It's trivial to adjust one of the
functions if you prefer more/fewer days than 7 displayed.

Only tested on the setup quoted in sig. Anyone who'd like a bundled copy
of the required bits, just drop me an email:
