    I'm not sure if it's ok to do this but is it possible to have the system stop writing in the the system.log? It's taking up a lot of space because and I want to stop it temporarily because for some reason it keeps rewriting lines every couple seconds.

    What is it writing in there? Lot of processes write stuff in there. Usually its because of errors, unless you installed something that was overly verbose.
