I see - so it isn't that Chainsaw has any problems, it's just that my Ruby
library implements Bonjour as opposed to mDNS, which means I have to specify a
protocol (TCP or UDP)... and Chainsaw isn't expecting that.
Perhaps Chainsaw could support both the less restrictive names _and_ the the
names + protocol, if that wouldn't be impractical and/or a pain in the ass.
If you're curious, I thought it would be nice to have Chainsaw to view my Rails
logs (I already implemented the appropriate XML formatting in Log4r a while
back). In fact, I thought it would be cool to be able to share a snippet of
code with some of my buddies that would handle both the broadcasting of log
messages _and_ the mDNS/Bondjour registration, so they could leverage the
awesomeness that is Chainsaw without having to bother with manually configuring
My apologies for taking so long to reply - I just moved 1000 miles from Dallas,
TX to Washington, DC. Thanks for your help!
