1 Minutes of meeting 05/02/2001 @ 2pm
2 Location: UKC Computer Science Meeting Room
4 Present: ajm4, pjm2, tdb1
5 Absent: ab11
7 Ash was absent from this meeting after oversleeping and not
8 making it to campus on time. The group waited for around an
9 hour before commencing the meeting anyway.
11 Initial discussions were, as usual, about the progress of
12 the systems. A lot of work had been done since the last
13 meeting, some due to the design change in the database. Paul
14 put extensive work into completely rewriting the DBReporting
15 tools, and they now run considerably quicker. AJ made the
16 frontend of the client display nearly all the data in a
17 graphical form, and changed more stuff "under the hood". Tim
18 implemented the local client structure, on both the server,
19 and a dummy client.
21 After feedback in the week from jc with regard to our
22 database size, the group decided it was worth discussing his
23 opinions. The group could understand the viewpoint, but
24 stuck by the long standing decision to use XML formatting
25 for the data. However, it was decided to look into
26 compression techniques, and possibly removing some of the
27 unneeded tags (using attributes?).
29 The group noted that time was slowly running out, and
30 expressed concern on the development of the host. Ash was
31 absent and unable to comment. There were 3 weeks remaining
32 until project week, and a lot to do.
34 On the whole, the group were happy with the milestones at
35 present, with some parts being further behind than planned,
36 but others further ahead.
38 There will be no meeting with Ian this week. The next group
39 meeting will be on Monday.
