 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I was doing some routine cleanup on my HD today and I noticed my temp folder was huge (over 22GB).  Inside I found:


It was a 21GB text file.  I looked at it and it what had happened was I had unplugged my Arduino while the serial monitor was running in the IDE and went to bed for the night.  All night long it dumped an error message to that log file non-stop.

You may want to put in some sort of check to ensure it doesn't create these massive logs.  I'm running Windows 7 x64 Ultimate if that helps.
