Tail — Its the coolest

So I figured out this new ability. Everyone else probably already knew it, but thats ok.  its called TAIL.  The command allows you to view a file in real time on the screen as changes happen.  This is great for applications that are logging things.

Heres the command:

tail -f /path/to/logfile.log
