    When the system log gets full, the OS zip's up the log and creates a new log with the permissions -rw-r-----

    I monitor the system log on the desktop, but require permissions -rw-r--r--

    Now I know how to change this manually, but there must be an automatic script that zips up the system log and creates a new one with appropriate permissions when it gets full. Looking at the file sizes of the old logs, not sure what full is.....:)

    Just wondering where this script was so I could change the file permissions automatically..
