could you direct me to it, or just send it to me?



My solution requires no Applescripting.

Once a month I use Stuffit to combine the logs into a single file and I move that file into an "archived SIMS logs" folder outside the SIMS log folder.

Saves tons of space too!

You might want to reduce the detail level of your logging - especially if you don't use them. You can always bump up the detail when you need it. That will make the files smaller, though not less numerous.
