This is a tiny utility that puts an icon in the system tray that shows you how long your system has been running when you hover your mouse over it.

Screencast


Usage

Installation
Unzip the executable to where you want it.

Using the Application
Run the executable. Hover the mouse over the system tray icon (a small clock with a green arrow pointing up) to show a tooltip with the system up time. Right-click the system tray icon to open a menu that lets you quit the application.

Uninstallation
Delete the executable. It does not store any information in the registry or create any files.

64 days :o .. I am thoroughly amazed!
