Ute Full Description
Ute is a compact utility with Time Syncing, Window Shutdown control, Wave File playing, Delayed / Controlled Running and Wallpaper Changing capabilities. It is a collection of Sinner Computing utilities (iTimeSync, Slam and QWave.) with two new functions are also added. (Run and Wallpaper.) It is optimised for Command Line Control but the Wallpaper Changer and iTimeSync can also be operated in window mode. (N.B. Ute is a 32 bit Windows program, not a command line program.)
The iTimeSync function synchronizes your computer clock with an internet time server. You can set up to five different time servers, which can be automatically checked in turn on a failure to connect, and a positive or negative time offset can be set if you like your clock to be fast or slow.
The Window Shutdown function, known as Slam, adds the ability to easily shutdown, restart, log off or power-down the computer. This can be useful for shutting down windows automatically at a set time using the built in Windows Scheduler. Force can be used to closed crashed programs, and delayed / warned shutdowns are also supported.
QWave is a compact alternative to much larger audio File player. It allows most audio files to be played virtually instantly as opposed to waiting for a larger program to load, display an window, and then play the sound. Auto file type registering is supported, as well as early sound termination for larger files.
The Wallpaper changer function will randomly choose a image from a given directory. It natively supports only BMP files, but it is designed to be used with an external converter / resizer.
Finally, the Run function allows a program / file to be run with process priority, delay and cancel options.
All of the functions have logging functions and settings that are saved for default use. Many of these settings can be overridden or changed when run in Command Line Mode. Due to being written in Assembly Ute requires under 100kb of hard drive space.
