* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Haiku, about a cat
« on: January 20, 2017, 06:02:09 pm »
I composed this haiku a few days ago, inspired by my quirky, wonderful cat sitting under a bush out the front of our home of an evening, watching the world go by & waiting to be let in.

Quote
Dark leaves drip water
night, quiet aside from rain
yellow cats eyes stare

With hindsight, it comes over a bit gloomy, but was drawing on the environment around me at the time.

As some of you may have seen from another thread, we lost this cat earlier this evening so RIP my precious Greebo, you will be sorely, sorely missed, always.

"Everything's made up of elements, right? Earth, Water, Air, Fire and... sunnink. Well-known fact. Everything's got 'em all mixed up just right."
Character Nobby Nobbs in the late, great Sir Terry Pratchett's Discworld novel The Truth

Thats lovely! Only dark if you assume the cat stares in a negative way.

((hugs)) Losing a pet is tough, sympathies and good vibes. I hope good memories stay fresh in your mind until the end of time :)
