My piece of the puzzle My biggest piece of the UITS puzzle is maintaining the Windows 8.1 computers in all of OSCR's labs and computerized classrooms, including dual booting the Macs. I also maintain a mix of Windows & OS X servers in support of the labs and OSCR internal file storage. Background I'm a Tucson native who studied engineering here at the UofA for a couple of years before the lack of practical applicability in formal education drove the last bit of interest I had in classes out of me. I spent a few years in the "real world" doing IT support for a small research firm discovering the wonderful array of oders and stains involved in materials engineering before coming back to the U to do desktop & server support for the now defunct Arizona International College. My supervisor was able to arrange a transfer for myself and some of our student workers to OSCR when AIC was closed down and I've been here since.
