Robert: the beauty of GeekTool is in not having Terminal or Console windows cluttering my workspace up. I pipe the console directly to the desktop as well. Less windows is good, more windows is bad.

(ok. technically GeekTool is writing to a window but you know what I mean).

BEEP!

Wrong answer -- it's called the Console(.app) use it if you have Panther and you'll be free of any PrefPane.

I do that too. Or "tail -n100 -f /path/to/file" if I need to preload some context. You can also pipe that through sed/awk/perl/colrm for munging in the interest of readability.

you can also to tail -f /path/to/file, it helps when debugging, because it follows the file.
