Writing to SharePoint Unified Log

Writing to Windows EventLog sometimes causes issues in SharePoint, especially if using NTLM security. In this situation you might have to allow anonymous write access to the Event log by adding information to a specific registry key (Google if you wish more info on the matter).

As an alternative you can write to SharePoint own log, Unified Log, as described here on msdn.

Btw - I wonder why people in other blogs copy the content from MSDN and place it on their own blogs. What's the idea? It doesn't add any value - it only created confusion as I tend to ask myself. What is the difference?
