RE: repeated entries in /var/log/messages...
It means your log gets time stamped, personally I like it. Makes it a bit more difficult for someone to chop out parts of the log to hide things and shows the daemon is running, its not unknown for syslog to stop working.

Since day 1 I installed debian, I see the following in the
Jul 28 21:01:08 woody -- MARK --
Jul 28 21:21:08 woody -- MARK --
Jul 28 21:41:08 woody -- MARK --
and they repeat every single hour at the exact same intervals. Does
anyone know what they mean and how can I stop them?
I am running the stable release (woody).
