Art Flexser's Extended Ados-3 time dated floppy files.
If you had a RTC in your system it would get the time
from it. Otherwise, it would ask the time when first
started up, and remembered it even after a cold reset.
I too like having time dates on files, and this was
a highly valued feature of Extended Ados-3. Though,
actually, Ex. Ados-3 had so many great features it's
unfair to single out just one.
