monitor event logs?

Hii this looks like a very interesting & useful project.  I wonder if you'd considered adding a Collector to check on Windows Event Logs.  That could be quite useful as well.  Thoughts?

I have actually thought about it but since I have another tool/project http://EventScavenger.codeplex.com (also on CodePlex) I have bigger plans to integrate them. Actually if I think about it you can use a combination of both tools right now (as is) to get Eventlog alerting working since Event Scavenger stores event log data in a SQL database and QuickMon already has a SQL Query Collector. All that is required is to create a SQL script to query the EventScavenger database and raise alerts then!

I will however also look into the possibility to create a stand-alone Event log Collector if I have time.

Thanks for the suggestion! Keep em coming
