Abstract/Artist Statement

Ground Zero is a home page with all the necessities a student needs ranging from calendars to programs and much more! This homepage focuses on students and allows them to organize their due dates and campus events. On this site, users can search topics for their courses or any questions they may have without having to leave the page. Our search engine checks the cache first to see if a search result was stored; if not, it breaks down the search then uses Python to generate our results page. This results page is then sent back, loaded as an HTML page, and displayed for the user. To make it even easier on students, Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) is added to the home page. With a click, it connects to the user’s Virtual Machine (VM) and there the user will have the programs they need for their courses. When this feature was added, a network was also created to host these VMs and the homepage. Currently our network contains a Windows XP VM, an Ubuntu VM, a switch, and a router.
