I'm saddened to say but i'm not as brainy as you guys are with this journal. I imagined it would have been like for example "Commanders Log - Date&Time bla bla. I was at an ice body collecting materials, not much luck out here today. Maybe its just the weather." That sorta thing. I suppose this is for high level tier people that are just interested in the coding aspect as such?
Third party tools can do that kind of thing. This is just opening up a lot of the data needed for a lot of the info you want, and then you can add more stuff to it yourself to make it more human readable.
