False Assumption

To write the data to disk it will most likely open the file, read to  
the end, then append the data and save the file. Perhaps it will be  
faster than saving into a field but most likely it too will slow down  
as the file grows in size. Your best bet is to rotate the log files  
when they get to a specified size. Letting a log file grow will  
eventually cause the same problem you experienced with a text field.
