NEW: Printing options:

New printing options allow direct printing from WackyB Archive Viewer, as you would expect both current chat and date range printing options are available letting you quickly, easily and accurately print entire chat logs. As with viewed conversations optional stats, time stamps and graphic smileys can be selected.
