Hi folks.

 

The team at Quic Broadband wants to share some time with the Geekzone team so they are hosting us in Hamilton, Saturday 6 April 12 PM for some food, drinks and banter - including a visit to a data centre.

 

Because the venue is a production data centre we need to keep the numbers to a limit and clear everyone for the day.

 

Please register here as soon as possible.

 

Excited to meet some of you there!

Folks, we plan to close registrations for this event close on 22 March so we have time to clear attendees with the data centre.

 

Remember, if you are not in the list you can't come in.

It's this weekend folks, and we have people flying (or going on a road trip) from all over the country for this event.

 

See you there and thanks Quic Broadband.

Sorry to say last minute family commitment keeps me from attending.  My apologies to GZ and Quic.

I may not make it or be a tad later sorry all, a flatmate has been unwell.

Look Ong forward to catching you all! I may just need to go back up to Auckland in the evening.

Nice catching up and meeting a few new faces!

 

 

 

sorry I had to shoot back to Auckland, managed the hospital just before closing and all sorted now :)

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks Shuan and team for arranging this, it was a great visit. 

 

Props to the Datavault team, as someone who does tours of one of our Datacentres know it can be quite nerve-racking. Love the passion guys, keep it up and look forward to seeing you in the near future :)

 

Best of luck with the power upgrades, having just done ours your in the right hands with GRNZ and Power Protection!

Aww bugger. I would've gone had I known, but I guess I never saw this pop up in the feed. Hopefully you all had fun!
Must be due an Auckland event or Wellington event soon? I'll have to try show up to one of those.





Anything I say is the ramblings of an ill informed, opinionated so-and-so, and not representative of any of my past, present or future employers, and is also probably best disregarded.

i might take a leaf out of Datavault's book and look to do one here in a few months... will discuss it with the team at some stage.

Thanks to all those who took the time to come on the Data Center tour.  I had lost my voice after I had finished with the last group!  It was great to see so much interest and so many great questions.

Thanks! We have carved a nice little niche for ourselves and have been driven by great community support! We have power upgrades to do at our Hamilton and Auckland sites and then we are, thankfully, past most major infrastructure upgrades for the foreseeable future.  Hopefully, then I can regrow some of my hair! haha

 

Cheers
