Thanks, it works great!
One question though, is this possible to report the forked child number after the date? Currently log lines look like this when --fork=N is used:

2 2016-02-22T23:16:20+0100 0:00:00:00 Proceeding with wordlist mode
2 2016-02-22T23:16:20+0100 0:00:00:00 - Rules: JUMBO
2 2016-02-22T23:16:20+0100 0:00:00:00 - Wordlist file: password.lst

or like this when --fork is not used:

2016-02-23T06:45:16+0100 0:00:00:00 Starting a new session
2016-02-23T06:45:16+0100 0:00:00:00 Loaded a total of 15151 password hashes with 15151 different salts

Hence the timestamp is not always the first field of the line.
