An ounce of ViM to change your mind

This time i had a dumb idea : colors in syslog in vim ! So i'm browsing, looking for a script. I download the file to ~/.vim/after/syntax/syslog.vim . Then a small edit in ~/.vim/filetype.vim to add :

augroup filetypedetect
au! BufRead,BufNewFile /var/log/syslog set filetype=syslog
augroup END

And there you go ! Next time you'll open your logs you'll have a rainbow of despair :-D

PS 2017 : I don't use it anymore. It's quite pointless.
