I really can't see why I'd want the event log if I'm using
the log file.  I can manage the log files much easier than
the event log.  With the event log I have to make sure
the event log on each computer is cleaned out occasionally
and hopefully before there is a problem.  The log files
are zero maintenance.  I know there is no _correct_ way to
do it and we are advised to do whatever works best for us.
Right now I am logging only errors to a central location
and am very happy with it.

Thank you both for explaining /quiet so well!
