15 <p align="justify">
16 Several central components are now functioning to initial
17 design parameters and data can now be passed through the
18 system successfully. Many planning and design decisions
19 are still being made, along with various specification
20 documents. Detailed information can usually be found in
21 the meeting minutes. Code is viewable via CVS to UKC
22 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 window.

40 On Monday 16th and Tuesday 17th October all members of the group made presentations to various groups of peers.

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