I'm not sure where to post this but this thread might be my best bet...

Is there anyone here who goes to Canterbury Uni and can tell me what the hub(s) is/are?
This is quite possibly an incredibly noob-like question, but I'm asking it anyway.

From what I can tell it's some kind of computer related system where you can exchange stuff?
Anyway if anyone knows...please enlighten me.


hey I'm at Canterbury Uni as well, can't say I've heard of the Hub :P

Not very helpful I know.

So apparently there is a HDD doing the rounds? I got a whole bunch of stuff I could put on for you guys assuming its USB connection (Just gave away my Desktop, down to my Laptop only shock horror!).

I am going to Sydney for a week in just over a weeks time (I go on the fourth...)

Anyway I could get the drive before than vslayer? I got your text, but I was out of money, and out of the house.

gojoe: sorry about that, i would have come by the next night but my shoulder was too broken to dirve the next nigfht and i had to leave for melbourne in the morning. i get back into christchurch tonight though so depending on how tired i am and whether i have to work or not i should be able to drop it off late tonight or tomorrow some time

tidia: yes, it's a usb drive, just make sure if you are using xp that it has SP3 or the drive won't recognise. unless gojoe has a particularly large haul there should be 100-200gb free on it fro you to fill up

Sorry guys the drive is still with me. I am at airport now on way to sydney. They had to inspect my carry on, and they dropped it, right in front of me.... mother fuckers. I will test it when i land. If it does not work I am going to buy a new one here.

well, i hope it still works, but if it doesn't i wouldn't worry about buying a new one unless your mates in sydney have a shitload of files to steal; seagate drives have a 10 year warranty on them if you send them back to singapore. i've had 3 of them replaced in the last few years.

also, i have everything but the anime on my computer, so if we do need to replace it i have just about everything that was on there backed up.

Just saying, I live in Waitakere, planning to do some serious travelling these holidays, full tour of both islands. Maybe could meet up with people? Not sure what my schedule will be though (or much else at this stage).

Hey blanket. Long time no see. didn't think you were old enough to drive.

You could probably stay at my house if you wanted. Or there's plenty of cheap motels around that I can show you. Or just take a tent and sleep in a paddock somewhere. And Nelson to Golden Bay is easy as pie. My house is in the middle, and I'm probably going to be heading out there a few times in December.

If you picked any 2 consecutive weeks, just under 1 in five will I be busy... I am working both those weeks. That is quite honestly the worst time for you to pick. The week after that, I am off...
