The systemd-analyze command will print the time taken for the system to boot up. This separates the time for the kernel and the userspace environment.

[email protected]:~# systemd-analyze 
Startup finished in 4.728s (kernel) + 28.339s (userspace) = 33.068s

This command will get the date and time from the Google website using curl.

[email protected]:~$ curl -s --head http://google.com.au | grep ^Date: | sed 's/Date: //g'

To take a screenshot of the desktop, use this command.

[email protected]:~$ import +repage -window root scrot_$(date +%Y%m%d%H%M%S).png

Now we can list the directory and see the screenshots we took.

[email protected]:~$ ls scrot*
