I've installed this, but it's not displaying any messages. The console is blank too. This is a really great idea, I wish it worked...

it might be good to have the ability to filter or only show certain items, not all.

An option to load on login would be cool, even though adding it to your startup items manually isn't very difficult.

Things were going well until I saw it using 100% of my CPU :(

Went to download this and the link wasn't working so went to the developers website and found a link for version 1.1 instead, so there's been a recent update.

Unfortunately v1.1 is racking up huge amounts of CPU on my machine as well so have stopped it for now. Looks like a useful little app, so hope they get these problems sorted soon. Couldn't find any way to configure the app though. Would be nice to be able to filter what gets shown in Growl, for instance only certain apps, or only certain levels of message e.g. don't show debug & notice messages but do show warnings and errors.

Will be interesting to see how this app evolves.

Thanx to both of you for the feedbacks. : )

The download issue has been fixed.

The intensive CPU usage is caused by ASL (Apple System Log) queries.
I'm currently trying to find a way to fix this.

I'm also working on a release that will include filtering options for apps, facilities, levels and users.

Have a nice day, and stay tuned... ; )

You can try version 1.1, available from the eosgarden's website. It reduces the CPU usage. : )

More filtering options are comming soon for the 1.2 release.

I've tried v1, v1.2 and v1.2.1, and every one of them does absolutely nothing.

They process is running but produces no output, doesn't appear in the Dock or Menu Bar.
