Monkeys like Logs

So I needed a way to fight boredom this weekend. So I decided to start work on a new side project. I had an idea that evolved into a pretty simple concept, to create a console program that monitors text files (log files) and displays their most recent line. It was an excuse to do more curses hackery and to take a break from garbage collection and memory management (which I still hacked on anyways :-). With that said, I have an alpha version of the aforementioned log-viewer TreeTop which you can snag here. "Monkeys like trees, climb to the top."
