comment Linux shutdown in 30 seconds?
Alright, then we sorted that out. Could add the format flags I mentioned and it should work also on new versions (although on minute resolution).

Tried switching to english locale, but it didn't work either. So I am not sure why it works for you.

comment Linux shutdown in 30 seconds?
I tried again on my home machine and it's not working there either. I know how backticks works. So I have tried on Ubuntu 13.10 and Kubuntu 13.10. Could be that I using a different locale ? Output from date --date "now + 60 seconds" for me is lör 22 feb 2014 21:25:03 CET and if I use that together with shutdown it prints "invalid timevalue" (translated to English). So your statement that the version you wrote absolutely work in all versions of ubuntu is simply wrong. If I specify the format to date it works though, like this: date --date "now +60 seconds" +%H:%M.

Does not work (at least on linux), this gives the time in another format than expected.

comment Get display resolution from windows command line
Thanks again. It did not work when connecting with rdesktop (or ssh into cygwin) though. Would be great to have it in all those situations also.

Yes thanks it works from cmd.exe. However I forgot to mention that I need this to work inside a cygwin shell and wmic do not seem to work there.
