This idea has come up, and been rejected, many, many times. Just one such discussion is located at A Chatterbox Archive. The fact is, people may say things in the Chatterbox that they'd rather not have archived for posterity. The chatterbox is an informal setting where people can say things without having to worry about them being logged and brought up again later. That doesn't mean I advocate offensive or obnoxious chatter, but the fact is that many people will modify their behavior, even if it's perfectly innocent behavior, if they know they're being watched and recorded. Logging the chatterbox will likely cause people to become more guarded in what they say, and thus will remove much of its charm. I know you're saying only the last 10 messages or so, but the same principle applies.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;

    [GrandFather]: It's a good day end here Corion. The start was somewhat less than average!
    [Corion]: GrandFather: All's well that ends well? ;)
    [GrandFather]: I'm fighting with a third party device our software is to support. The documentation for the device's SDK is quite a lot less than average and most of today was spent ...
    [GrandFather]: discovering that one of the sensors for the device lies about the gain range it is using!
    [GrandFather]: However, by the end of the day I had discovered its deceptions and now have it working correctly, so yes, all's well that ends well. :-D
