urig Tidbits from a .net life

Who knew the old Notepad.exe still had secrets hiding among its modest codebase?

Try this: Open a new text file with Notepad. On the first line type .LOG (in capital letters). Save the file and exit Notepad.

Now, every time you open the file in Notepad, it will be opened on the last line and a time stamp will appended to it just before that. The file is effectively a poor man's journal. How neat is that? :)

Whoa, that is really neat. This trick isn't nearly as cool, but you can cmd commands in one step (and keep the window open with the /k switch)

Ex:
cmd /k ipconfig
