Improve system performance by moving your log files to RAM

You guys are all stupid. This is for a laptop or flash based system. Not some production server. The idea is that keeping the logs in RAM will help preserve battery and flash disks. Turning off logging is just as dumb. When I'm doing development I often need to see the logs. But I'm not depending on them so if the system does die I don't care about a few lost logs. But this program is nice because it will copy the logs from RAM to disk when you shutdown. So barring any system crashes you will still have access to past logs.
