Netstumbler

On 8:51 AM
One of the most flexible and user friendly tools out there for interfacing with wireless networks has got to be Netstumbler. With this free application you can not only manage and connect to local wirleless networks, you can also see the technical specifications of each one. This is certainly much more than what you would get with the native Windows Wi-Fi manager.

Desperate to understand what your faculty and students REALLY want (because it’s never what they ask for)?
This handbook gives you the methodology description of the JISC Academic Networking project.
A run-through, with real examples, pictures and lots of ‘how-do-I-start-on-this’ should enable you to get started on a project, using this methodology yourself.

> Download the Handbook
> Download the complete method book - This is a very long and detailed version of the Handbook above, so be warned! If you do want to get the details though, with a lot of examples and pictures, you might find this one interesting

This outcome is one of the products presented at the JISC Innovation Exchange at Birmingham 28th-29th January

Another outcome of this exciting project is a brief example video which shows you a real user testing session so you get an idea of what user testing is like.

We also run a workshop on Friday 5th of March 2010 which gives you concrete tips on how to get started on doing a user testing session yourself, and a chance to ask questions and explore your ideas with others who’ve done it before!
After the workshop, you’ll be invited to see the sights of Cambridge!

This workshop will take place at CARET (16 Mill Lane, CB2 1SB Cambridge). It will probably be a full day (morning and afternoon), but further details will follow later.

Apply for attending this workshop by emailing Laura (laura @ caret.cam.ac.uk) or Anne-Sophie (asd38 @ caret.cam.ac.uk), and definitely have a look at the video!

As you are all aware Haiti has had a bad time with nature. The new year (January 12 2010 to be precise) witnessed a 7.0 earthquake that struck 10 miles south of Haiti’s capital, Port-au-Prince. This has created wide-spread devastation including loss of life, property and has left many with severe medical problems and also homeless.

It has been estimated that at least 2.5 to 3 million people are affected by the Earthquake. The earthquake also triggered a series of mudslides, collapsed many buildings, and also knocked out power and communications lines. If you are interested to help even a small amount such as $10 will go a long way in helping those in need.

International Medical Corps is a global, humanitarian, nonprofit organization, founded by volunteer doctors and nurses and dedicated to saving lives and relieving suffering through relief and development programs. Their team is treating crush injuries, trauma, substantial wound care, shock and other critical cases with the few available supplies - And they're in it for the long haul.

So, please go ahead and donate generously by clicking the link here.

If you are in US, you can donate $10 to help the people of Haiti in a very simple way such as sending a text message of the word "haiti" to 85944 (Works only in US). The sms method works only in US, others please contribute via their secure website.

If there was a time when you have looked at a file extention and had no idea what type of file it is or what type of application to associate it with, then the listings at File-Extensions.org would be a great first step in solving your confusion. A great directory of file extensions and associated applications.

I've been using Mozilla Thunderbird 3.0 for the last month or so and have been impressed with it's function and orginazation. It is slightly different in the way it organizes and displays email compared to ealier versions of Thunderbird. One major differrence is the way that it can display all emails from all your connected email accounts in one universal inbox, of course you can always select individual inboxes from your individual email accounts, so there is great flexability in interaction and display within the program. Highly recomeneed with great plug-ins that can be added. You can access POP3, IMAP and most HTTP(Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail, etc...) based email once configued correctly along with the correct plug-in's added, well worth the time!
