I find when I WiFi that the WiFi routers block the Windows Time Service. I thought it may be a nice idea for a small utility that does a one shot time sync when a button is clicked. It could sit in the tray. Perhaps with a command line switch so that it syncs the time and exits without showing a Tray Icon.
Right now what I am doing is getting the exact time off the web, then using the time command on the command line. It would be nicer just to hit a button and have it compensate for AM/PM etc..
This is mainly aimed at my Laptop so I am looking more for a manual trigger than recurrent as I may not be connected to the net when the interval expires.
I found a few ahk scripts on the forum that use the IE activex control to get the time, but they don't quite do the whole job. Sort of fragments from back around 2006.
The simpler the better.
Edit: this thread
shows how to get the tine using the ie object avoiding the router block.
