 Using Jabber as a log monitor

"My script is just a hack, intended to illustrate that Jabber is not just a chat server and should not be treated as such, as it's infinitely more useful than that. In its current form, this script is not extremely useful for anything but monitoring your local machine's messages file. However, it probably wouldn't take much to make it more robust. If you ran it on a centralized log host, it would get more useful rather quickly. Also, this script currently sends its messages to everyone currently logged in to the Jabber server. "
