    I opened a log file as described in the readme.txt expecting that it would tail this file - that is allow you to see the file change. It simply doesn't work - well not for me on a Win7 machine. The only way you can get it to update is by opening the log file in notepad - then this WinTail program updates! This is my experience and therefore makes this program worst than useless since I had to spend time finding out that it does less than periodically opening in notepad.

    The update speed is tragic (take about 30+ seconds to notice any changes) and the GUI could use some modernizing.

    There's another Tail for Windows project hosted here in SF that looks much better than this one. If you search for "WinTail" you'll find it.

    The program compares itself to tail for unix, except that unix's tail is very fast to update. This program decides to once in a blue moon, and there's no way to force it it seems.
