I joined Automattic in 2005. I have led and contributed to development of many core features including rich editing, widgets, attachments, rewrite, wpdb. Plugins I maintain include Stats, HyperDB, and Batcache. On WordPress.com, I am responsible for the firehoses and the instant messaging service im.wordpress.com which delivers subscription notifications in real time.

I live on three acres of Texas hill country land with my wife, our daughter, and our pets.

comment How to combine a real-time clock with tail -F
Very nice program! I will find it useful. Still, the clock on the status line only updates when there is output so multitail doesn't meet the goal. I want to know how old the last log entry is without consulting a clock outside the terminal window. If multitail updated the clock or (even cooler) showed the H:M:S since the last entry it would win.

Thanks for these. I also just found and tried tmux which I didn't like as much. As it turns out, the code that I posted has been running all day with no conflicts.
