... as for part 2:

but then you might forget to type sessrec.......

why not insert a -log using...-  and a -cmdlog using....-  line in your
profile.ado?  Then you'll never forget.  For a bit more sophistication, Ian
Watson has done the heavy lifting with his -autolog.ado- command, fetchable
from ssc (-findit autolog-).  It supports the -log- command, but it looks easy
enough to tweak and so add or substitute the -cmdlog- feature.
