[Information]

Uptime4Win does just what the name suggests.
It displays your windows system uptime via icon tray tooltip or console.

NOTE: The download is currently a bit oversize. I used QT for the tray icon and the icu stuff increases the size unnecessarily. Since Im to lazy to make a custom QT build without icu, just to recompile this, I added the console version for download, which is tiny.

[History]

Back in the early 2Ks inFECT, a friend of mine, started the first uptime contest on IRCnet #uptime

To expand on his connection uptime contest idea, I wrote linux and windows clients that would submit system uptimes to a server and display those on a webpage.

Back then there was no uptime tool for windows like on linux and so Uptime4Win was born.

Most of my old sources got lost over the years, but since I recently started to write some stuff for windows again and there wasnt much work involved, I felt like bringing it back.

[Installation]

Just unzip and run.
