My Notepad as My Diary!!..

Its been ages since I used .txt file in a notepad application. Textpad and notepad++ took all its space.
I just recollected a very nice cute feature which notepad posses.

.LOG feature. Though most of you might know that, I still insist posting it.
If we keep storing the information in a notepad on a daily or on a random basis,
and all of sudden on fine day, if we need to know by when you added the contents to it. It will be hard to recollect.
It is also equally tiresome to keep entering data and time everytime we open the notepad.
This functionality get ride of this issue.

To create a log file in Notepad:
1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Notepad.
2. Type .LOG on the first line, and then press ENTER to move to the next line.
3. On the File menu, click Save As, type a descriptive name for your file in the File name box,  and then click OK.

4. When you next open the file, note that the date and time have been appended to the end of the log, immediately preceding the place where new text can be added.

This functionality is very much helpful to automatically add the current date and time to each log entry.
