16 tdb 1.6 Most i-scream components are now functioning to initial
17 ajm 1.4 design parameters and data can now be passed through the
18 tdb 1.6 system and displayed successfully. Documentation is still
19     being generated, to allow for future development of the
20     i-scream project. Detailed information can usually be
21     found in the meeting minutes. Code is viewable via CVS
22     to UKC users only.

26     Our current host development allows us to pass machine statistics
27     to our distributed filter arrangement, which then processes the
28     data and stores it for later use. An example of such use is the
29     historical report generator which produces graphs of machine
30     usage over periods of time (viewable in a web browser). Realtime
31     clients are also currently being developed - one Java Swing GUI
32     version and also a command line version that can run in a terminal
33 tdb 1.6 window. Alerting mechanisms are being put in place to complete the
34     i-scream system.

41 tdb 1.6 The project deadline is 4pm on 29 March. As such, we plan to
42     complete the coding process by (at the latest) the end of the
43     project week (26/2 - 2/3). This allows time for documentation
44     to be tidied up and completed, and printing of the project.

48     As can be seen in the "problem domain" document, the project
49     was aimed at the UKC Computer Science department, and as such
50     we believe a demonstration to the "customer" is important. We
51     plan to do this over the next two weeks, and the feedback given
52     will allow any "last minute" alterations to be completed.

56     <center><h3>Naming History</h3></center>
58     <p align="justify">
59     The name <b>i-scream</b> arose from a meeting whereupon one member
60     of our group randomly chose to draw an ice cream on the white board.
61     It later became apparent that we had no name for our project (other
62     than 'The Project'). It seemed only natural to name our project after
63     the ice cream that had been oh-so-randomly drawn on the white board.
64     Copyright issues immediately ruled out anything involving Mr Whippy,
65     so we had to settle for <b>i-scream</b>. And thus, we were left with a cunning
66     play on words - it still sounded like <i>ice cream</i>, yet also
67     served as a functional decription of our system - namely, one which
68     screams at somebody if something has gone wrong...
