WebServer Monitor 1.0.4

Category : Technology/WebServerMonitor104.txt

It's been bumped up another notch. You can download it from here.

While using it, I realised I wanted to "hold on" to the current log record line, when I'm re-sorting the columns or when I'm doing a search. I find it especially useful to be able to mark a log record after I've done a search, and then hold on to it, when I clear the search field, so that I can see it in the context of other activity that happened around the time that page got hit.

For example, I did a search for ".zip" and noticed a download of DNS Enabler, and I want to know how that particular user got to that page - e.g., was it through Google or what? And did he/she go anywhere else?

This seems like a key step. You need to know what people want in order to keep up your end of the dialogue - if marketplaces are like conversations, as someone said.

Actually, this is a little piece of software but it fits within a larger scheme of things. I was re-reading a couple of articles I had written on the right ("How Businesses Could Use Macs" and "A Mac Business Toolbox") and they're written two years ago, like they're "Bernard's Manifesto", but the pieces are starting to come together now.
