following irc with inotail

Being always in a several irc channels, it’s helpful to have an overview of what’s going on without tabbing through a dozen windows. Fortunately I can follow the logs using inotail:

$ find /home/dan/.purple/logs/ -name "`date +%F`*" | xargs inotail -fv

This would also work with tail — the only problem is that _tail_ with so many files would put some strain on the filesystem.
