In the old days, before the game remembered it for you automatically, inscriptions were a great way to remember where and when you found significant objects (artifacts, powerful egos, high level spellbooks).

Yeah, IIRC that was done in Moria? And while I see modern *bands remember where significant objects are found why is that important?

I definitely remember inscribing items that were dropped by uniques as a quick way of tagging them as "at least good", back in the ZAngband days (so, branching from Angband 2.8.x). Better than waiting for pseudo to kick in...

Oh ... yeah. I can see that. Very useful!

Useful complement to that inscription: use "^." on the shovel. Apart from looking like a one-eyed Japanese emoticon, it prevents you from running if you forgot to un-equip your shovel.
It's very handy, especially when you have an ESP weapon to walk around and a better one to take down strong enemies.
