Wow, I'm really surprised this isn't default behavior. Knowing when you last logged in isn't nearly useful enough to justify the delay it so routinely causes.

It's worth it when you realize someone else has been logging on as you over the weekend.

Well, I suppose it seems sillier on a laptop than on a desktop.

or a server...

Well sure, but I wasn't saying that it should be default behavior for Mac OS X server or server-aimed n*x distros. I don't think that most people are using non-server Mac OS X as a remote server, and those who are could override the default.

But then you can't trust the logs.
