I learned something interesting today. If you have ever wondered what the uptime is of your Windows machine, simply drop to a command prompt and enter the following:
net statistics server | more
net statistics workstation | more
You’ll see a line that says “Statistics since ." This is quite accurate – the alternative I’ve always used prior to this was downloading the Windows NT: Uptime.exe utility. The utility, provided by Microsoft, says that it’s only supported on Windows NT 4.0, and Windows 2000. But, it does in fact work on Windows XP, and I suspect it’ll work on Windows 2003.
