Well for me, I want the ability to have all my logs stored in a central
location and be able to easily put the data on my website if need be. I
think it would be cool to have a constant backup of all my logs in a central
location and it would just make sense to store them there to begin with.

Plus, you could add mapping features like Gerry mentioned and easily display
the data on a website if one wanted to (this is one of the reasons I want to
do this)

I know it may seem overkill, but having logs stored in SQL just seems to
make more sense to me, and the database software is free! :P

Not having a lot of experience with databases, I can't say for sure how
taxing it would be on a db, but I can't imagine it would be that intensive
