Quick and stupid: Don't set unlimited on the buffer size of Terminal

If you’re a developer and use Terminal.app, don’t set “unlimited” on the buffer size. After a day of using it heavily to review logs and whatnot your computer will be *really* slow. It’s Terminal.app keeping in RAM what you did yesterday. Stupid and Obvious, but still figured I’d write it down.
