Verily I say unto thee, that Kelsey Bjarnason spake thusly:

I could understand the failed "open" attempts if it were trying to
execute a file by trying various paths, but this is a data file, and
surely Notepad has already been told where it's being saved, so why
would it be searching paths for that?
As for four open/write/close ops; would one of those be something to do
with a fork for the metadata in the ADS (Alternate Data Stream)?
Anyway, who cares? The only thing about Windows that isn't a mystery, is
the fact that it's a bloated; inefficient; horribly broken mess. Do we
really need to know any more than that?
