I was at one of the graduation dinners for Manukau Institute of Technology tonight, afterwards jumped into chat, mentioned it, and d3Xt3r is currently studying at MIT.

So who else on Geekzone is/was a student at MIT?

I have a Bachelor of Information Systems for the record, did it 5 years ago.

If anyone's from the south campus, drop by at the P block computer labs sometime - my second home. :)

I did CBC/DipBC in 99-00. I also worked for the then-Information Systems Dept as a techie. NQ/NR/NS Blocks FTW.

BlakJak: NQ/NR/NS Blocks FTW.


Haha, awesome.  There's now NO block, which joines NQ and NS together I think (there's a quadrant in the middle of all four blocks).

IT when you were around was probably on the top floor of NR?  The main servers are now in a custom build data centre in the old teachers block (the building with the high tower).

I swung by MIT last year to see some familiar faces - an old friend works for IT - and he gave me the grand tour of the IT facilities. Managed to swing briefly by NQ block and see some familiar lecturers, etc, but as I was enroute the airport to catch a flight home I couldnt loiter quite as long as I wanted.

yeah, when I was there, NQ/NR/NS were on their own and the courtyard was a nice sunny spot to talk/eat/etc between lectures. I guess if theres an extension to fill in the gap on the other side, thats the logical place...

IT was always over next door the high-tower building when I was there, I had a wee bit to do with them, but I worked for the school of IT - not the techies of IT - thus whilst there was some overlap it was also a different chain of command. I was basically sole-charge maintaining all of the Windows 98 clients in NQ/NR/NS block - between classes. (worked out to about 10hrs/week, plus more hours during holidays).

sleepeyNZ: You must've been within a year or two of me. Pretty sure BIS was established in 1997-98?
