Dear Wolfgang,

>From http://www.digistamp.com/desktop.htm:

"An e-TimeStamp gives you strong legal evidence that the contents of
any computer file existed at a point-in-time and that the contents
have not changed since that time. Consider this a type of notary
service - only updated to become a digital notary. Any file on your
computer can be time stamped, regardless of its content."

Is that what you had in mind?
