Do you ever need command line access to see how long a machine has been up for? This morning I did. I needed to prove that a machine was up last night at 3 am when a critical process was going down. Someone flucked up and it sure wasn’t me! So…

Using one of my favorite command line commands NET I will show you quickly how to display your Windows up-time:

net statistics workstation

This will show you a similar screen to this:

The first line across the top shows when the machine was last rebooted along with some other geeky goodness. Do you have an easier/quicker/more obscure way of doing this?
