This is the courtyard above the Office of Information Technology on campus. Do NOT ever put a data center in a basement. ...Under a brick courtyard like this one. A problem with water will be inherent to said data center. I promise.

Because of the water problem, you will repeatedly have to tear out bricks, patch leaking areas, and then eventually say, "fuck all." and tear the whole thing out and incorporate Plan B.

Hey look...they're directly over my office. Remember that scene in The Empire Strikes Back when the Rebel Alliance is evacuating their base on Hoth, and the whole fucking place is coming down on top of them? That's Plan B. There is a supposed "nature area" going in, although unlike every other construction project there has been no concept art released. This will be interesting.

Wow. That campus looks sooo much like OSU (the university whose foundation I work for).

Whoa. Dude.

And boo for working the basement. No windows.

How are you not tempted to play Moorlock's and Eloi when you are all working late? They are just begging you to with this setup.

Brilliant. Instead of a water problem, you'll now have a problem with water AND roots. They forge the minds of the future...too bad they have none of their own.
