I have been using Ubuntu 11.04 since Fall of 2011, and in that time I've accumulated some chat logs that I would very much like to preserve. I've used empathy and/or pidgin as my chat client of choice. What is the best way to save these conversations, so that I can view them later if I like? I've also read that even when the chat logs are backed up they can be difficult to read or search and would like to get around that if possible. Thanks in advance.
