Hi You All,
I have noticed that the longer it has been since I updated a particular Foldit client, the larger this client's log.txt file becomes. log.txt only seems to shrink when I update a Foldit client. I often wonder if some of my Foldit crashes are caused by log.txt simply becoming too large. Also, does a large log.txt file actually slow down Foldit?
Because of these things, I am considering deleting the log.txt file periodically. Is this a safe thing to do? Is it best to do this between Recipes? When is it safest to delete the log.txt file? Perhaps I could just move log.txt to logold.txt each time, then I would have a backup of the most recent activity in log.txt at least. Please advise.
