This is the first ResNet newsletter of the year, also sent by email to ResNet subscribers.
MyMobileBristol – campus info on your mobile phone
MyMobileBristol is a new mobile webapp for the University. It includes info useful on the move, such as maps of the campus, locations of wireless hotspots, and live bus departure info for the whole city. It is designed for recent smartphones such as the iPhone and Android devices.
To try MyMobileBristol go to m.bristol.ac.uk on your mobile.
AskIT – community IT support
Also new for this year – AskIT! is a new way to get help with ResNet, wireless, and your own IT equipment. AskIT is particularly suitable for less urgent or more specialist problems. If your ResNet connection doesn’t work please give us a ring, but if you can’t get email on your mobile try AskIT. AskIT is a community support site, so you can contribute your own expertise and help other people who own the same equipment as you.
To try AskIT go to askit.bris.ac.uk
ResNet bandwidth widgets
Most students don’t need to worry about how much they upload and download on ResNet, as the weekly usage allowances in ResNet Standard & Max cover most people easily. We do have some very heavy users – if that sounds like you try the ResNet bandwidth widgets. We’ve got widgets for the Windows sidebar, OS X dashboard, and the web. We’ve also got a public API and some great widgets contributed by students, including one for Android phones.
Go to toys.resnet.bris.ac.uk to try them out.
