Looks like it's copied from http://ananthkannan.blogspot.cz/2009/10/how-to-change-log-levels-on-fly-using.html If so, it would be nice to mention the original source.

Which I thought I already did in my blog post, where this gist is used. I believe Nelz was first with a post on it in 2008.

OK, I am sorry. Google has found this gist and not your blog. Nice piece of code, thanks.

No worries 😄 I'm just glad you found the code you needed 👍
