Re: logf enhancements

From: Jonathan Gordon <>
Date: Sun, 4 Jun 2006 09:44:57 +1000 welcome to the internet :D as for not
testing/compiling it, i said that this was more for feedback than to

RaeNye: thanx, ill fix those typos.
as for it not working, im not sure how often the log is currently

im gonna make a test plugin to test it properly, probably today but
we'll see.
