Summary: Log management/view GUI

Initial Comment:
The "View Log" GUI is great on a per-buddy basis, but
it is really inconvenient when the buddy is offline,
and you have buddies hidden, or you have a lot of
buddies and don't want to have to search through them
all.  It would be nice to have a more general GUI
listing all the logged users, and when you click on
one, you can open the "View Log" GUI for that user. 
That way you dont have to "show offline buddies" and
search for their name, or open a "New Instant Message"
with the buddy's screen name, and then go to View Log.

Something like...  Menu "Buddies > Log Management".  It
opens a GUI with, let's say, an expandable list by
account, for example:

+ usera (AIM)
+ 1234567 (ICQ)
- userb (AIM)
 |  buddya
 |  buddyb
 |  buddyc

Then you can click on "buddyc"  and go to View Log to
open the current Conversation Log GUI, OR that
account/buddy list could be incorporated into the
current Log GUI, so that it lists  Accounts, then
Buddies, then Conversations, whereas the current GUI
only lists "Conversations" for a preselected Buddy.

I hope that makes sense.

Just to make sure I understand this correctly, you want to:
click buddies > log management which will show a list of all
your buddies (even the offline ones) from which you can
choose to view their logs such that you don't have to click
buddies > show offline buddies which will show a list of all
your buddies (even the offline ones) from which you can
choose to view their logs?

Is that correct?

It may solve the problem you described, but it still leaves
the problem I mentioned.  I do understand what you're
referring to, and yes it does get annoying.  But there's
still the problem of finding the logs when they're offline.

I would rather have the log viewer merge all the logs for a
particular person (who may have multiple logins to the same
or different IM networks). Since you would probobly want to
see everything that you said to that person instead of to a
particular login that person used, I think this would be

Buddy Jim has logins jimbob(aim), jimbob2(aim) and 12345678
(ICQ). All are aliased as Jim.

You want to remember something Jim told you on IM but you
don't remember which login he was using at the time (and
reasonably it shouldn't matter). If the log viewer merged
all these logs when you have all the logins associated with
each other (in the little tree you get when you right-click
and hit expand) then it would solve this problem.
