I'm a long-time user, infrequent nagger
Occasionally I'll get errors from my news servers. When I do, the Console screen updates so fast I cant read the messages. The only workaround I've found is to pause the entire download (short duration but ruins the "work flow"). Would you be able to implement a "pause live scrolling" -type control to the Console window? Perhaps a right-click (along with "clear") or a button. I would not want to stop the messages from coming in, just allow me to move the slider back to previous messages and not keep dropping to the last received message.
