Have you seen the logcmls/logreintegration/etc. tcl/tk/tix scripts? 
They are an attempt at presenting some of the information from codacon 
in a slightly more visually appealing way. They are still a far cry 
from a GUI ofcourse.

After you close the file. The file is stored on the server when the 
last writer closes it.
