Being a newb - and having the worse memory - I am wondering if there is anything that I can do, or use for "auto" journalling?

What I mean is -- when ever I do anything system wide or on a local user is there something that I can make that will automatically "remember" what I did.

Being new I like to learn and explore - cp files, mv folders, etc - and sometimes I am in the mind set = I just did it I am not going to forget it. But, at the same moment, I forget that there are times when I may not be on my system for some time - and low and behold when I come back to the machine I forgot where I put something or what it was I was attempting to do at the time.

I guess I want to use (or learn how to make) an app that includes any changes, the times/day changes occured, where the changes took place - if something was moved where it was moved from and too.

Not sure if I am making any sense regarding my request? I guess I want my machine to be "smart" and I want to know how to make it so.

(Yes I do try and note changes my self, however I dont do it for EVERY action, when I should be)

using Slackware 10.2.

if you look at your ~/.bash_history file it will have a log of the commands you've executed... also, take a look at the script command (do a "man script"), as it lets you make a logfile of all the shell commands you enter, including the terminal output... i'm not sure how to make either show a date/time for each command, though...
