Here is a simple function I use to inserts the date and time:

(defvar current-date-time-format " %d/%m/%y %H:%M:%S "
  "Format of date to insert with `insert-current-date-time' func
See help of `format-time-string' for possible replacements")

(defun insert-current-date-time ()
  "insert the current date and time into current buffer.
Uses `current-date-time-format' for the formatting the date/time."
       (interactive)
       (insert (format-time-string current-date-time-format (current-time))))

I use the Alt Shift C combination for this function:
    (global-set-key [?\A-C] 'insert-current-date-time) 
If your Alt key creates the Meta modifier, then use:
    (global-set-key [?\M-C] 'insert-current-date-time)
Of course, you can choose any key you like.

Ehud.
