    Abstract:
    Work on further developing the IT Systems both in terms of on-site computing and database development work continued during the build up to the season and for a short period on site. During the close season since 2003 documents were prepared to put to IBM, the Project's IT Sponsor, containing fairly detailed reports on the problems faced with the on-site networking (in terms of power, aging PC equipment, etc) and a wish list of equipment required by the project in order to continue to function properly on site. IBM kindly met these requests by providing 2 new servers (1 for on site work and 1 to assist project work from the Cambridge office) and 5 new laptop computers. The on-site technical work consisted of setting up the existing project equipment, with some minor configuration changes to prepare for the deployment of the new database systems and to provide some minor network enhancements. As a stop-gap measure pending the delivery of the new equipment from IBM the new central database server software (Microsoft SQL Server 2000) was installed on the existing server and the first of the new, centrally managed applications, was made available to site staff. Upon delivery of the IBM equipment work was undertaken to set up and configure the new hardware and then to perform a mass migration of all data files and databases onto the new server. This work was undertaken with minimal downtime to site staff.
