IMHO, this is worse than merely ugly. I gave up "rotating" log files a long time ago when I kept running into problems that needed extensive time periods worth of log data with which to resolve issues. I use some modifications to the periodic scripts to do the log data archiving with time related names. Of course, if you're generating megabytes of compressed log data every day, this is likely impractical but it works well for systems I normally use. -- Walter M.
