(cc'd to the devel list)

I just noticed the "China Standard Time".  Do your event log records 
contain non-ascii text?  If so, I'll have to switch to the wide 
character version of ReadEventLog() I think.  This might also explain 
the duplicate records you showed me earlier (?).

Where are you located, btw?  I forgot.

Also, regarding the EventLog#notify_change method, I just remembered 
something.  From the MSDN docs: The NotifyChangeEventLog function does 
not work with remote handles.

If there's a way to remotely log to a *nix syslog from Windows, I'm 
afraid I don't know what it is.  Anyone?

The win32-service package should work.  Check it out.
