DESCRIPTION

    Are you tired of always having troubles with finding your pen and
    paper just to write down the last guru you got.  Now this problem is
    solved because I have written a 'small' and quick program that will
    show, not only the last guru, but a nice hint to what caused it.

    Like this...

WHAT AMIGA SHOPPER WROTE ABOUT THE ANCESTOR OF DaLastAlert 3

    Amiga Shopper wrote the following about LastAlert2 in issue 46
    (February 1995):

                              ----------

    From Subscripers coverdisk description:

    "LastAlert2 is very useful utility indeed.  It will tell you the
    Guru number of your machine after it has crashed.  Once the folder has
    been unarchived double-click on the install icon and the files will be
    copied to the appropriate directories. By default LastAlert2 will be
    copied to your WBStartup drawer. This means that if you machine crashes
    the program will be run as soon as the machine resets. It will produce
    a requester that informs of number the offending Guru."

                              ----------

    From inside the magazine on page 78:

    "If there is one thing that is guaranteed to turn even the most sane
    Amiga-user into to an irrational, salivating wild beast it's a system
    crash. When this happens it's a good idea to make a note of the guru
    number that is flashed on screen. Unfortunately the average human is
    unlikely to be in a state of mind that will facilitate the execution of
    such a complex action. During these moments of debilitating rage you
    will certainly benefit from a program like LastAlert2.

    LastAlert2 is a Wb2+ program that will record the last message
    displayed by you machine. This will give you the opportunity to take
    note of this number while you are in a more... chemically balanced
    state-of-mind."
