[INFO] Ocean Grid is four years old
Ocean Grid is now four years old! Hooray! :-D
The grid was created on 16 March 2010.
However, the grid's home region, Annwfn, is the oldest region now on the grid, created on 21 October 2010 at 11:26:24 am. Of the others in the group of four home regions, Gododdin was created just under half a minute later at 11:26:53 am, Celyddon was created under four minutes later at 11:30:08 am, and Aeron was probably originally created at almost the same time, though the present region was re-created over 77 days later on 6 January 2011 at 11:50:07 am.

[COMPLETE] New web site
The web site has been migrated to the Joomla! content management system, which is more flexible and easier to manage.
Some small sections of PHP code have been migrated from the Wiredux platform, which appears to be essentially unmaintained, and are therefore available under the same licence as listed on their GForge site. All other content is unaffected.
