Useful UoA stuff that they don't tell you about unless you're really lucky.
Sorry for the hackjob of a website, but I'm lazy and I only know basic HTML. If you have anything to add, you can email me (my NetID is in the url) or post it to the Overheard @ University of Auckland
Facebook group. Thanks to Andrew Chen for making the first list, I just put it together on
here and added a
Stop the inactivity notifications in CECIL (Scott Goodhew).
If you don't have Chrome, check out CECIL Tools (User: cecil-tools, pass: access).
Automatically reconnect to NetLogin when it drops out (Kerey
(Note: you still need to sort out connecting to the proxy and changing your Internet settings to get faster internet on the University WiFi, which you can find on .PDF's here. Use NetLoggedIn as a replacement for NetLogin).
Automatically poll for SSO exam/grade results (so you don't have to keep logging back in etc.) (Milos Ivanovic)
Export your semester timetable into Google Calendar, or iCalendar, or whatever.

Other kind of useful things I found while trying to get things done.
Aww yus it's time to get some sparkles up in dis bitch.
- List of software on the computers. I found this when trying to find a computer
with the SAP software for
my infosys 110 paper (just use the business school computers. No one else has it).
- Web file access.
- Remote desktop access (Business School). Again, you can't find SAP
