* "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.

Free PDFs from the Metropolitan Museum of Art!
« on: November 02, 2012, 05:06:31 pm »
The Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC has made a bunch of its older/out of print exhibition catalogs and guides available for free, either to read online or to download as PDFs. There's a lot of great stuff here, including plenty of material for those interested in historical Pagan cultures--looking through quickly, they have a bunch of books on arts of ancient Egypt, some on the Classical collection, the ancient Near East, and also Irish. And, of course, all the other stuff in the Met as well. :)

Usually when you wave reading material under my nose, it's considerably more expensive.

Bookmarked for later perusal; right now I'm wiped.

I think you've just given me a great procrastination tool just in time for NaNoWriMo.  The really difficult part is going to be deciding what to read first.

It looks like they have a couple of hundred available. I just took a quick glance, but there is a lot of stuff I'd like to read here. The only problem will be picking where to start.
