This is what I see (minus the '> '):

> while 1:
> user, serviceType, msgType, inOut, date, time, numBytes =
> aLog.GetNextMessage("")
[etc]

Advice: use spaces, not tabs, to indent posted code (some readers discard 
tabs).  Don't use google groups to post code (it deletes initial spaces and 
won't, apparently, fix this bug).  Use news.gmane.org group 
gmane.comp.python.genral instead (I believe they also have web interface in 
addition to newsreader interface).  If you really, really must post thru 
google, prefix lines with char such as '|', even tho this kill cut and 
pastability.
