DESCRIPTION

Over time your log will fill with cruft: work no one is interested in any longer, tags whose meaning you've forgotten. What you want to do at this point is chop off all the old stuff, stash it somewhere you can find it if need be, and retain in your active log only the more recent events. This is what truncate is for. You give it a starting date and it splits your log into two with the active portion containing all moments on that date or after. The older portion is retained in your joblog hidden directory.
