Profile Information

Mail-Artist since:
My Website (without http://):
Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I like communication, art, paper, painting and concepts. The ideal combination for doing Mail-Art. Worked with rubberstamps as a child and started sending out letters as soon as I could write. Discovered that it was called mail-art in 1980. Have been discovering ever since and in the last years also promoting this free cultural exchange.

Hi Ruud, sorry to come again with my problems to you but I worry that you may be paying for a certificate that does not work anymore.
Since last week nearly all the illustrations are gone again and I tried to open IUOMA in my phone it told me the site was 'unsecure'
In My Photos Album 'Heeeeelp!are the screens I got on the phone.
This is the only way I managed to contact you. The symbol to attach graphics to messages has gone too so I could not attach the photos here. It worked two days ago even if the photos did not.Is it only for me?

Hi Ruud, I tried to use other devices. Same problem on phone but on another laptop it can't connect to the site. Says IUOMA ning is taking too long to respond. All other websites are working fine so I don't think it's my internet either.
At 6:34pm on January 31, 2021, Mel Anie said…
Hi Ruud, Most of the images on this ning won't display for me on either Safari or Chrome. I can't send messages either and I can't sign out. I don't know what the problem is. Thanks, Mel Anie.
