Hi Don, thanks for trying, but I don't think you're really speaking to my
questions here!

>1. Using XML just for describing the structure of the data makes no sense

hence my observations re filters and oo file systems.

>2. Compression reduces file size difference to 10%-30%.

3rd nf reduces log files by 16:1 without compression.

>3. Cost of 10 Gig drives will be considerablly less by the time server
>vendors stop supporting legacy log formats.

n* 4++ will still be far more

>4. Due to the Y2K problem, concerns for compactness is equated with
>shortsightedness these days.
