Second Life Transcript Coloring

If you deal with transcripts of meetings, in our case in Second Life™ transcripts, they are usually chat logs. They are not that easy to read. So, some people have scripted tools to colorize the transcripts.

Gwyneth Llewelyn has an article up where she writes about her transcript colorizing tool: Revisiting the Colourising Script. She explains some of the problems she has run into over the years. 

You can find the tool here: http://gwynethllewelyn.net/colour-code/

Colourised transcript as follows

[2014/09/04 15:03] Mæstro Linden (maestro.linden): Actually, I think we did fix llXorBase64 at some point, but that was very soon after it was relased

[2014/09/04 15:04] Mæstro Linden (maestro.linden): that was like the 3rd version of that function we debuted, as the earlier variants had other quirks which existing scripts were probably relying no

  1. If you want to actually READ the transcript – this is useless. The blue disappears into the background. Few other colors not much better.

    Your ad still sticks into the column BTW.

  2. I need to run my own color palette in my browser (orange on black). I didnt even realise the transcript had diffrent colors until I allowed the website to use its own color.
