Diary of a Summer Trip to the South Pole 2006/2007

For most of December and January I'll be working at the South Pole with the IceCube project. My main goal for this season will be to install computing infrastructure into a new Data Center which was completed early in the season. This is in a building which has been refitted for the use of the IceCube project. Installing the equipment includes installing all the support equipment such as racks, networking, and cabling, and configuring the computer for use by the software engineers. We will also be making significant changes to the AMANDA computing system so that it is integrated into the IceCube system. After this is complete we will decommission the temporary system we have been running on for the last 2 years.
