Notepad trick

Notepad-usefull Trick
This is real cool for people who use notepad to write down any info on a day to day basis?
Open a blank Notepad file
* Write .LOG as the first line of the file, press enter.
* Save the file and close it.
* Double-click the file to open it and notice that Notepad appends the current date and time to the end of the file and places the cursor on the line after.
* Type your notes and then save and close the file.
Each time you open the file, Notepad repeats the process, appending the time and date to the end of the file and placing the cursor below it.

This also works in Linux using the WINE environment.
Can't see much use for it though  Smiley

Re: Notepad trick

Or simply choose when you want to insert it - and press F5 to do so...
