Rename File Based on Date and Time

The weather stations in Alaska are going to be uploading their data with a static filename based on the station identification number.  Since the filename is always the same, if the satelite link back to UC is down, the files will start to get overwritten, and data will be lost.  So we needed a way to rename the files to a unique name.  We found this great little article and batch file on the PC Magazines website:  http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,1386947,00.asp

It was actually for renaming picture files from cameras, but will work for our purposes.  Nice and simple one line batch file.
