Today’s Stupid Thing

We have our PHP error logging turned back to E_ERROR | E_PARSE_ERROR. Why, you ask, if it’s in the log, and it’s good to know what’s going on? Why, because if we turn on E_ALL, the logfile grows very fast (!) and the server goes down when it’s over 2 GB.

*shakes head* WHAT?!? That’s the dumbest thing I’ve heard today. Either fix your damn errors so a logfile doesn’t kill things, or have a cronjob take care of log rotation/compression/deletion. Good god.
