I've had proxy.org blocked for a while.   I use 'less'.  If you type
'less access.log', then hit "shift-F", it will 'follow' the file.  
The reason I like less, I can stop the following with a control-c,
then do a reverse search with $.   Or, I can do a regular search with
With less, you can use | to search for multiple items.   I'll
sometimes run a search for proxy|privacy|secure, then press shift-f,
then if any of those terms shows up, it will be highlighted.
