Well the program I'm developing is irc services, any particular way
you'd reccomend recoding it so it doesn't crash because of a 'Disk Full'
error ?
I actually found out that my disk got full because iroffer
(www.iroffer.org) has a bug in it and went into an infinite loop today
100% cpu usage writing out data to a log file using up my entire disk

But this eventually caused services to crash because it couldn't write
out it's own log...
