  Really no sense in this, since all you will be doing is calling more
windows API
functions. Without totally rewriting it, you may be able to display the
logs in
an windowed application, but even small calls like invalidaterect and the
are just going to chew up unnecessary cpu time. Every movement of a mouse,
type of a key, ect, is going to register to windows as being passed as a
callback and its going to slow everything down....
