Daniel,
The problem is the "/" after ".log". Also, since you already set the
-logtype- you don't need to specify an extension, unless you want
something other than ".log" (e.g. ".txt"). Try the following
modification.

*!Version 0.1 - Daniel
set mem 500m
set matsize 1000
set logtype text
log using "/users/`c(username)'/documents/statalogs/$S_DATE", append
display "DateTime: $ S_DATE $ S_TIME"

Best,
Rebecca
