A virtual dairy

Most of us in the IT world have a habit to scribble notes in our daily activities. However, there is another way to have a virtual dairy available

 

* Open a notepad and type .LOG (case sensitive) as the first line.

* Save and close the file.

* Double-click the file to open it and notice that Notepad appends the current date and time and places the cursor on the

next line.

* 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 and placing the cursor below it.

      I can't help myself, I'm a spelling & grammar pedant.

      (And in the interest of our global audience here on SCN, think it's good to share this information otherwise an important point can be "lost in translation")

      It is also possible to draw a connection between this Dairy and Remember the Milk app.

      You may have ignored it or failed to detect it.

      I knew many wonders can be done in excel. But never thought of notepad too 😎

      This is pretty cool.
