I wish there was a good way to account for everything I do after I walk in and type:

$ emacs

Mail buffers, shell buffers, Python buffers, eval'd buffers, scratch buffers, w3m buffers, CTRL-META-thisthatandtheother commands.

About the only thing in my history are sudo commands needed when I have to change a system setting.
