ROVworld - One month notice of site lockdown
As VideoRay technology continues to advance, we recognize the need for a web presence that represents our commitment to offering the best experience for all our users. With that in mind, we've completely overhauled our website to better accommodate your browsing needs.
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.
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.
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.

With effect from Friday 02 July 2004 (for around a 48 hrs period) ROVworld.com will be shifting to a faster server with more space. There may well be a disruption of service during that period.
Whilst we are shifting servers site content will not be updated but should be back on track Monday 5th July.
We would like to apologise if this causes you any inconvenience.
Update: 05:30hrs Sunday 04 July 2004.
After a long night the site is now operational at it's new home.
Most of the data seems to be intact.which is a releif considering there are over 75,000 queries in the database.
There are a couple of monir glitches that we know about.
If you spot anything please use the feedback form and let us know
Today ROVworld.com implemented a new caching system on their website.
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.
