Tailing your log file

In Unix we have tail -f which will allow a user to see during real-time the values that are being committed to a log file. I tend to use log4net as my logging utility, however I can't always use a console appender to view your log in real-time. On Windows, a good replacement is called Tail for Win32 which allows you to do the same thing, and also colorize the output based on keywords. A nice little tool.
