I just started sending to an Ubuntu server, on which I'm trying out 
various solutions.  I'm pretty sure I installed Logcheck (and 20 other 
things that started with log...).  It all tended to come out...ummm.... 
in a way that was really difficult for me to read.

I feel a good rant coming on (but will spare you for the moment).  Let's 
just say that I'm not looking for the holy grail and it shouldn't be 
this difficult.

Yeah, I'm the guy who bitches about KDE and Vista, yet I want something 
a little prettier than syslog text.  I'm shooting myself with my own gun

Thanks for the suggestions - I'll be checking this week (subject to the 
usual emergencies, a few unseen emergencies, chocolate breaks, and 
twelve meetings my boss `forgot to tell me about').
