Be careful about the size of your log actually. I had a server that was offended at my memory space-filling transaction log. After truncating several and backing up others[logs] I realized I needed to simply delete multiple 1 gig+ files on the server. SQL likes it's space, always respect that.

Truncating your log? <OUCH>

I'll go for the file deletion option EVERY time

(Aw come on! Someone had to say it!)

Guess I should also add (at this point) that probably not a bad idea to wait a while before the creation of little databases too.

I hope that when I die someone will say of me "That guy sure owed me a lot of money"
