Hahaha -- the famous Phil 101, GPA-booster. I took that some time ago when I was at a loss what to pick for my fourth class, and could use an easy A on my record :D

@Bomma: I still think the best thing to have pre-exam is a glass of wine, followed by a short black espresso. The red wine mellows you out and relaxes you, the espresso gives you enough juice to run on for the duration of the exam. Tipsy is another thing though :lol:

I accumulated SO many parking tickets in the cage when I was bringing it to university. Bloody parking vampires...:angry:

You've already met me Nish - I crashed the bandit on Princes St a couple of days before I joined the club...I remember your green 7R and a scooter in the quad attracting me to your stand :)

Will keep an eye on the upcoming rides in my email...

It's normally parked down at Law School on Eden Cres - it's very shiny and red now after a respray :sunny:

haha it amazing how many people have done phil101 for the easy marks.

still the parking at uni for bikes is way better than 'stalking' princes st for 30 mins trying to park a cage.

I still feel uneasy swinging u turns on symonds st just so i can get to the bike parking. some people behind me and sweet, others are not.

Your bike still seems to be coming to uni though. GB400, square numberplate, Union Jack tank protector, Honda stickers removed?

you mean UCOL ? or there is that other little uni that has a campus in palmy, auckland and wellington....

only auckland would leave a uni right smack in the middle of the cbd tho :weird: :laugh: i used to park my old gpz down alfred (i think its alfred?) - do the bikes still all park down there? primo spot right in the middle of the campus but if you drive you're screwed....

Haha, yea it was a phil 101 test. VERY easy paper :) I ended up having to wait in traffic to get down to tournament cos traffic was so bad on princes and symonds street and then had to walk up to the 260 building with a bung foot! Late for the test aswell of course. haha, luckily it was a very easy test.

<hints id="hah_hints"></hints>Heheh just winding you up.

Alfred St, yeah, I sometimes call it Albert St as it's right opposite Albert Park. But Albert St is somewhere else :D No, they had the parking there up until early this year (I think that was the time), there's a thread up about it.

Complete pain in the arse they removed the parking there, it was such a good place. Now you have to park on busy Symonds St, somehow back your bike in quickly while there is a break in the traffic, and when you leave you have to pull a pretty dangerous U-turn usually.

Most uni students wouldn't drive anyway, even if there was masses of cheap parking. Too expensive in fuel alone, and driving around the CBD is no fun at all.

I think i saw your bike last night, parked up on princes where the old bike parking used to be...

Yep, that would've been me -- I park on the big slab of concrete path on the corner of Princes and Albert.

Hahah haven't done CS111, it used to be you could do it no matter what, but now it's restricted against CS101 and CS105, which are `real' papers I took, being a CS major. I have heard stories, though :yes:<hints id="hah_hints"></hints>

Nah, CS111 isn't restricted. I took it last semester and my mate who's doing either stage 2 or 3 compsci is taking 111 aswell! haha, points filling papers are great!

Haha, there's one foreign chick my mates and I call "compsci chick" who used to hang around the maths and physics building on her break... but she doesn't look as good this semester cos she dyed her hair blonde... she looked better as a brunette IMO, haha.

I don't know what it is about auckland uni, but it seems that whoever decides who is and who isn't accepted into uni is under strict instruction that AT LEAST 3/4 of all females enrolled at one time have to be of above average in the looks department.

Is it just me or do you guys notice it aswell? There seems to be multitudes of very nice pieces of eye candy!

I can't believe there were complaints about parking at uni this time last year.
Compared to now, last year it was almost pleasurable parking at uni...

Perhaps that is not a bad thing, but rather indicative of the fact that these are important and ongoing issues worthy of discussion??

This thread smells of decomposition - surely it should have degenerated into a pile of binary goo when you molested it by inserting a spanner in its works...

*EWWWWW! Don't do that with spanners! It's not what they're for*
