Reading a text file.

Hi,
Can anybody suggest some code that would allow me to open and then read a text file and then return the results within a datatable?
The complicated element is that this code will run inside a Window Service so I only want to read entries that have been written within the past 24 hrs.  

The log data looks like this:

25/07/2014 15:55:55 - Log Data
25/07/2014 16:05:57 - Log Data
25/07/2014 16:05:58 - Log Data
28/07/2014 07:41:43 - Log Data
28/07/2014 08:10:27 - Log Data

There can be any number of logs written and each is usually under 255 characters.

TIA

Are you able to store and maintain the last position you processed up to (another file, registry)?
