Notepad tip

I was watching a podcast today, and learned something new about one of the oldest windows programs….

In notepad, at least on windows xp, if you press F5, it will insert todays date and time

BUT, maybe more usefully, if you start the file with

.LOG(UPPER case, and you do need a period in front) – I just made it really big so you could see it.

Every time you open it, it puts the current date time stamp on a new line at the end of the file.
