fix (workaround) the thousands of log entries that logitech solar service creates on osx

It turns out that you can "instruct" syslogd so that it ignores all messages from Solar Service instead of writing them to /var/log/asl. Here's how:

1. Add the following two lines in /private/etc/asl.conf:

# Ignore messages from Logitech's Solar Service.app
? [CS= Sender Solar] ignore

2. Reboot

OR simply restart syslogd by running:

sudo launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.syslogd.plist
sudo launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.syslogd.plist
