Memoriser is an fascinating little freeware program which helps you remember stuff like phone numbers, passwords, birthdays and the like. It accomplishes this valuable feat by repeatedly asking you what the fact is until you get it right. Sounds annoying right? Well maybe, but if it works as well as it seems to do, then you get to remember important things quite quickly, like the wife’s birthday f’rinstance.
I wrote this for myself because I have all these important account numbers and telephone numbers of friends and am embarrassed that I can’t remember them, or have really taken the time to even try to memorise them. Memoriser starts with my PC on startup and I define the time between each question. While my day progresses I am quizzed on my predefined questions at the scheduled times. At first it is very frustrating because I keep on forgetting the answers, but I quickly learned to focus and concentrate a bit harder to remember. In the end the repetition pays off. What was quite amazing was that after a couple of days I could remember a 16 digit number without really thinking about what the answer should be.
