IRC transcripts

These are plaintext logs with space separated fields, so are posted wrapped in <pre>

12:06 Tantek: what does the datetime stamp represent?
12:07 KevinMarks: in iRC, when it was said
12:07 Tantek: is it a point in time *before* they started speaking?
12:07 Tantek: or *after*?
12:07 Tantek: or somewhere in the *middle*?
12:07 KevinMarks: usually it is quantised to seconds
12:07 KevinMarks: and it is time the msg was received
12:07 Tantek: but the second they started typing or pressed return?
12:08 KevinMarks: prssed return i think

Or as plaintext + <br> (eg http://chocnvodka.blogware.com/blog/_archives/2005/8/25/1169654.html)

(22:20) gturneruk: oh, i just remembered. windows 95 is ten years old today
(22:22) Suw: good god. i mean, i shouldn't be surprised, it being 2005 and all. but still, where did that time go?
(22:22) gturneruk: lost clusters
(22:23) Suw: i obviously need to defrag

iChat transcripts

iChat handles timestamps differently, inserting them between statement blocks, every 5 minutes.

Reconnecting to tantekatwork…
Kevin Marks: So, iChat shows timestamps between entries
Tantek: yes
Tantek: what about Adium?

Kevin Marks: my copy is 230 days old...

   <div class="message">.+. is a lazy way of saying .{2,}</div>

Adium X

Adium X is currently developing an XML-based log format. This is version 0.3:

<chat date="2005-11-20" account="mactigerz" service="AIM" version="0.3">
    <event type="windowOpened" time=""/>
    <message sender="chz16" time="">'sup?</message>
    <message sender="mactigerz" time="">trying to get to work on the the new XML log format</message>
    <message sender="chz16" time="">Doesn't sound bad.</message>
    <message sender="chz16" time="">Providing you have the log specs, of course.</message>
    <message sender="mactigerz" time="">that's what I'm creating.</message>
    <status type="offline" sender="chz16" time=""/>
    <status type="online" sender="chz16" time=""/>
    <status type="away" sender="mactigerz" time="">brb, working on the XML log format</status>
    <event type="windowClosed" time=""/>
</chat>

This format remains under development, so this page may not reflect the current version of the format.

JWZ

http://www.jwz.org/hacks/irc2html.pl was used to generate the irc logs for Bar Camp Dallas : http://barcamp.org/f/barcampdallas-irc.html

ChatZilla Internal Format

Note that there is no proof that this format is being used "in the wild." ChatZilla uses HTML as its presentation layer. This heavily elided excerpt shows two lines from a chat. It gives the flavor (a very big table with each row a chat message divided up into three columns: timestamp, user name and the message itself) but there are many more classes in use in a full log.

 <div id="output">

MSN Messenger XML Format Logs

Examples at: http://stupidpeople.commo.de/logs/After%20August%202004/, there are a bunch there but not sure how widespread it is. General structure appears to be a Log element wrapper, with toplevel Join and Message elements. It's a little strange how the To element has children indicating all the recepients, normally that would be implicit, but there may be a reason that isn't clear just from this example. Original posting for example: http://microformats.org/discuss/mail/microformats-discuss/2006-February/002937.html

ILRT Logger Bot Format

Found at: http://chatlogs.planetrdf.com/swig/, generated by: http://cvs.ilrt.org/cvsweb/redland/logger/, there are three formats: HTML, plain text, and RDF.

Taking RDF first just because that's kind of fun and is presumably 100% semantics. Pretty straightforward RDF Sequence with date/description/creator, except for the line with a Dublin Core relation stuck in there. As is normal with RDF, semantics are reused, so to fully grok it there's some followon work to do, see: http://www.w3.org/2004/Talks/0522-rrs/ The foaf group got involved with IRC chat since IRC names are one of the ways to identify people, looks like it snowballed, not sure if the ChatChannel stuff is official or not. The Dublin Core and WordNet stuff is mentioned in the FOAF spec index, but seems to be missing from the actual text, I might have been looking at an old version.

Trillian Internal Format

This is for an AIM chat, but one for a Yahoo! chat looks the same. It is saved as plaintext as well as XML. (user1 is local).

Plaintext:

Session Start (user1:user2): Fri Apr 01 17:43:06 2005
[17:43] user2: ping
[17:43] *** Auto-response sent to user2: My hovercraft is full of eels.
[17:46] user1: hey
Session Close (user2): Fri Apr 01 17:47:00 2005

The same in XML:

<session type="start" time="1112395386" medium="AIM" to="user2" from="user1"/>
<message type="incoming_privateMessage" time="1112395386" medium="AIM" to="user1" from="user2" from_display="user2" text="ping"/>
<message type="information_standard" time="1112395387" medium="AIM" text="Auto%2Dresponse%20sent%20to%20user2%3A%20My%20hovercraft%20is%20full%20of%20eels%2E"/>
<message type="outgoing_privateMessage" time="1112395573" medium="AIM" to="user2" from="user1" from_display="user1" text="hey"/>
<session type="stop" time="1112395619" medium="AIM" to="user2" from="user1"/>

There is also a "user2-assets.xml" file for stuff like Buddy icons & file transers:

<asset medium="AIM" name="user2" link="C%3A%5CProgram%20Files%5CTrillian%5Cusers%5Cdefault%5Cbuddyicons%5Cassets%5CAIM%2Duser2%2D1118046544%2Ejpg"/>
<asset medium="AIM" name="user2" link="D%3A%5CPIX%5CY2005%5C0619%5CMOV02050%2EMPG"/>
<asset medium="AIM" name="user2" link="C%3A%5CDocuments%20and%20Settings%5Cant%5CDesktop%5CDSCN0372_resize%2EJPG"/>
<asset medium="AIM" name="user2" link="C%3A%5CProgram%20Files%5CTrillian%5Cusers%5Cdefault%5Cbuddyicons%5Cassets%5CAIM%2Duser2%2D1133932754%2Ejpg"/>

Google Talk Format Logs

Again, user1 is local.
