"Logfiles filling up a disk is a problem that can creep up on you and break things in mysterious ways. For instance, if you're editing a file and try to save it when the disk is full, some editors will give an error. So keeping some free space on the disk at all times is very important, and you should make sure your system is set up properly so this doesn't happen again, dear. Just be thankful you caught onto the situation before losing important data."
