Kurumi: sync time without the bullshit

I run a Windows installation which has a very restrictive firewall. One of the things it blocks is Windows' NTP ("Network Time Protocol") service. This is the service that automatically synchronizes your system time to that of a specialized time server. If it's disabled, your clock will slowly desync over time, or, in my case, within a few days. My usual setup to deal with this is to just go to say, time.is and adjust the time manually. But, that requires effort, and after all, they say the best ideas arise out of laziness, right?

Jokes aside, I've created a tiny (66KB) tool that will synchronize your system clock for you, in case you don't want to use the built-in service. It's very simple and doesn't ask questions - just run it, and it'll tell you how badly out of sync you are, then offer to fix it. Hit "Fix" and all your problems will go away!

If you're interested, you can pick it up here.

If you find any bugs, this is the place to report them!
