I am using Apple's Terminal and Rails 1.0 on Tiger.

I am tailing my log files and it seems with one of these updates things
changed a little. I see all these 'ESC' codes all over.

How can I make the output prettier? I'd rather not move to iTerm, not
one of
my faves.

You should be able to go into terminal preferences and select the
'declare terminal type ($TERM)' setting to 'dtterm' or 'xterm-color' -
that should fix it up for you.

Either this or remove log coloring altogether, see the last section in
this wiki page :
