Well it's been a long.... time since my last entry, hopefully that will change, I've been busy with a lot of work and personal stuff so... But any how I'm working on a new project, called logchecker (currently looking for a new name), well I'm lead developer of this project and it's quite interesting, up to this point 80% of the code is done, so in a few weeks it might be made public.

What is it about?

Well the idea is to have a program to parse the logs, for specific data, usually security related, then a nice formated report is given, so what is interesting about that? Well the admin will be able to use the program to monitor the whole network and receive a report detailing the findings, or he might just configure it to collect the info and send it to a central server for backup or whatever.

The program is being coded in Perl, we are using a modular design so that a person with Perl knowledge, will be able to either use the individual modules or hack the program how he see fit.
