Till July all still is good, but the inflation and also difficult times in the world are noticed. We will see how long this NING platform can stay online.

That is good news! Yes, and with thousands of members on this platform I thought it would be easy to keep the IUOMA online network alive. But possibly not everyone sees this group neither the 'donate' part... So, to all IUOMA members: hear! hear! Help by contributing!

Additional a question to Ruud: how much does it cost to add a 's' to the 'http', so that this site will be https?

It does feel a bit (or much) more safe, so possibly it is worht it?

November 2008 this platform was created for the IUOMA. Soon we reach the 15 years online. Who ever thought we would stay alive that long without commercial adds on the platform.

The Website on NING crashes and was restored. That happened on March 2nd.

Now slowly all functions are being restored. Also the datacapacity of the website was enlarged: 335.92 GB (67%) of 500 GB is now used.

Comment by Ruud Janssen on February 15, 2023 at 6:17pm

today this IUOMA on NING website is 333.94 GB large.

That explains why the hosting is expensive
