Website Notice: ROVworld - One month notice of site lockdown

ROVworld - One month notice of site lockdown

After 13 years of operating it has become clear to us that we are no longer connected with the ROV industry as we once were.  Becoming somewhat disconnected from ROV operations, and the ROV industry in general, means we have developed other priorities in work and play.  Our onshore business interests are starting to take up more of our time. It is for those reasons we are giving a months notice to advise that: 
WEF 31st December 2013 - ROVworld website:
  • Will no longer be updated for Industry news.  
  • The forum will be locked.  
  • New members will not be accepted.
  • Banner ads will be allowed to run to natural expiry.  Most are reaching that point anyway.
What will happens to all the information posted and the and URL's?
All the accumulated information will be kept live indefinitely (urls will remain registered to us) as a source of reference for those that might find it useful.  
We’ve put a lot of time and effort into this site over the years and it’s had its interesting moments thats for sure :)  It kind of blew up into something we didn’t expect back in 2000 when we made a couple of static pages live with some Industry information on them!  In 2003 we switched to a Content Managements System (CMS)
Some stats: Over the last 10 years
Since Sat 13th Dec 2003 we have received
  • 58,406,765  (Yep! 58 Million!) page views
  • We’ve also had 8,339 members sign up during the same period.
  • News articles posted: 6,513
  • Number of news item reads: 5,026,248 (Yep! more than 5 million)

Website Notice: WHOI unveils website on its role in Gulf oil spill research

One year after the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon drilling platform in the northern Gulf of Mexico, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) is unveiling a new multimedia website, Science in a Time of Crisis. The site features scientists and engineers who continued the WHOI legacy of oil spill research by providing an objective insight into the immediate and potential impacts of the historic event, which took 11 lives and released millions of gallons of oil and gas into the Gulf over three months.


Website Notice: WHOI website will take viewers deep into the Gulf

It may take years before scientists determine the full impact of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. But, utilizing the human-occupied submersible Alvin and the autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) Sentry, researchers are about to investigate - and view first-hand - the possible effects of the spill at the bottom of the Gulf.


Website Notice: Hydro International Buyers Guide online

The Hydro International website can now also serve as your directory. Using the new Buyers Guide facilitates you in finding the right contact for your business. You simply select companies following 'name' and 'company activity' as described by Hydro International.


Website Notice: Photo Gallery

In the next 48hrs we will be burning the midnight oil upgrading our Photo Gallery which lost some of it´s functionality during the last server migration.

Please bear with us if you seem to get some weird results in Gallery or if other areas of the site seem affected in some way.

Hopefully the end result will be a fully functional Photo Gallery with more features than before.

Best regards

The page load times had been slowing down due to the large amount of information stored in the database and increased connections to the database.

As a result of the upgrade page loading speed has now improved dramatically and, as a result, members can now experience quicker access to various areas in the site.
