From the this-would-have-come-in-handy-last-semester department comes an awesome tip from Microsoft themselves. It shows how you can create a log file in notepad that automatically adds the time and date stamp everytime it's opened. Had I known about this earlier in the semester this would have been extremely useful when creating notes in classes. To play along, simply open up notepad and on the first line type in .LOG. Save and close the notepad file. Next time you open it, you'll be greeted with a nice stamp in the form of 7:33 AM 7/7/2006.
