  1. ok, on my desktop i use yahoo widgets and kapsule widgets like a clocks and weather and a system uptime widget and what i would like to know is, is it possible to fake your system uptime? e.g say windows says when u restart and it says windows uptime has been 0days 0hour 53 minutes and is it possible to fake this in windows so it would say 74days 7hours 22minutes????

    Perhaps use an OS that is actually capable of such uptimes? :p

    The possblity of what you want to do, depends on how exactly the widget obtains the system uptime.. You could use the depends utility or APIMon to find out. If it uses the in-kernel uptime counter, then there's no easy way to change that.
