TimeSync v2.33

billon on 8 Sep 2016
  • 104KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 7 Sep 2016
  • Suggested by Andrew Lee

TimeSync gets the current time from a NIST server, and adjusts the PC clock if necessary. It will try alternative servers in case the time cannot be obtained from the first server. You can use the "/auto" parameter to run TimeSync so that it will automatically synchronize the time without user action.

Emsisoft Anti-malware scan found DealHelper.com malware... which is strange because I've been using it for years. Anyone?

In my eternal quest for optimization I (accidentally) removed NTP support from my XP installation through nLite, so this program is very useful to restore lost functionality at a small footprint :)

As a couple of others have stated, this utility is completely unnecessary for Windows XP, Vista and Win7 because they already have time synchronizers built in. Other than for a school assignment for 'Intro to Programming 101,' I have no idea why someone would waste their time writing it.

For a different perspective about weather-related applications,

now the way to change the download directory:

edit the gPodderPortable.ini file within the App\AppInfo\Launcher directory and change the GPODDER_DOWNLOAD_DIR=%PAL:DataDir%\config\Downloads line to something else. But it would be reset on each upgrade.

from a thread in the PortableApps forum

seems to work.

Hopefully other entries could be added including those already listed @TPFC like Gpodder.
