So QUB have begun rolling out a new WiFi solution across the campus, deprecating qub_sec.
The settings for _QUB_WIFI have changed, so for convenience sake I'll list them here.

EAP Method (Authentication): PEAP
Phase 2 Authentication: MSCHAPv2
Identity: student number
Anonymous Identity: leave blank
Wireless Password: your password

Unlike before, after the first time you connect to _QUB_WiFi you need to sign in via some sort of web based portal. Going straight to Google or Facebook won't work due to HTTPS, so try example.com in order to be redirected to the _QUB_WiFi sign in page.

I've tested this on my Linux computer and Android phone.

On the 24th of April 2012, I published an Android application, that I developed over the course of a week, onto the Android store. I initially developed it for my own use as I thought it would be cool to see the daily featured Wikipedia article on my phone homescreen each day. For almost a year I got very few downloads, and I kind of expected that. However I kept publishing updates as I discovered bugs and thought of improvements, such as adding in the 'today in history' section as an option.

A couple of these updates must have been useful, as a few of them resulted in a spike in the number of downloads. These can be seen in the image below.

At this moment in time I have over 15,000 installs, with around 30% of users still having it installed. I'm quite surprised I have got so many downloads, and I feel somewhat guilty for not continuing to make improvements due to being occupied with other things.

Oh, and the link to the application on the Play store is: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rmc.dfaw
