Old but interesting notepad feature

Old but interesting notepad feature

this is a feature that existed back in win 98 but i just recently found out so i wanted to share this

   1. Open a blank Notepad file
   2. Write .LOG (in uppercase) in the first line of the file, followed by Enter. Save the file and close it.
   3. 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.
   4. Type your notes and then save and close the file.
   5. 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 is helpful if you want to track notes for different purposes

In the interests of clarity, it seemed necessary to constantly remind myself to pay not the slightest attention to the elegance of the presentation; I adhered conscientiously to the rule of the brilliant theoretician, Ludwig Boltzmann, to leave elegance to tailors and shoemakers. Einstein
