Gather & convert Dante Controller logs

Here is the code used in the utility:

(* Gather Dante Controller logs into a file on the Desktop and convert timstamps to a readable form | Please attribute this work if you share it, and please report any bugs or issues you encounter
v1.0:	15/07/19		Rich Walsh
v1.0.1:	15/07/19		Removed unneeded option to remove first line in awk – tail is doing that
					Corrected awk to use tab-delimited rather than comma-delimited, not that it actually mattered
<<< Last tested with Dante Controller 4.1.0, MacOS 10.14.5 >>> *)
