I think it would be quite handy, if "last" would log the uptime,
before a reboot takes place.
I've seen this on Linux.
Quote from the man page:
" The pseudo user reboot logs in each time the system is rebooted. Thus
last reboot will show a log of all reboots since the log file
it looks like this:
reboot system boot 188.8.131.52-20a-smp Fri Dec 22 16:44 (158+00:14)
Here you see the uptime was 158 days +
What do you think about it ?
