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 ACAPsoft utilities (iTimeSync, Slam and QWave.) with four new functions are also added. (Run, CD, Backup and Wallpaper.) It is optimised for Command Line Control but the Wallpaper Changer and iTimeSync can also be operated in windowed mode.
The iTimeSync function synchronizes your computer clock with an internet time server. You can set up an unlimited number of servers, which can be automatically checked in turn on a failure to connect plus a positive or negative time offset can be set if you like your clock to be fast or slow.
The Wallpaper changer function will randomly choose and resize an image from a given directory. It natively supports most JPG, GIF and BMP files.
The Backup function will copy changed files only from any selected directory and can be set to maintain 10 recent copies of the directory.
The Window Shutdown function, known as Slam, adds the ability to easily perform all shutdown operations. 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.
Finally, the Run function allows a program / file to be run with process priority, delay and cancel options, and the CD function allows a selected CD drive to be opened, closed, or toggled.
