iChat logs may use up large amounts of drive space

Funny that my Adium log folder is 10MB, for several years worth of logs...

I love how Adium logs in text or html, which makes it easy for grepping. Of course, spotlight can handle the iChat logs, but that doesn't offer you the flexibility of writing a script to nab all URL's that you've shared in the last so many days, etc.. Adium rocks. =)

Funny that Adium also doesn't transfer images or files in its IMs. And depending on how much it likes you, it might not transfer anything except text IMs anyway

The reason the iChat log folders "balloon" is because it saves everything people send you. At the very least, images included.

That's like comparing the filesize of TextEdit and Appleworks just because they can both do word processing.

That said, everyone should be using Adium anyway.
