* "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.

It's that day again. The night I lose an hour of sleep.

In most of the US, it's time to set your clocks forward. Daylight Savings Time starts at 2am tomorrow morning (which suddenly becomes 3am). You'll probably want to set your clocks forward an hour before you go to bed.

I believe Canada changes to DST overnight as well.

Heh, I never knew this - you learn something new every three weeks, on average (that's what I find, anyway).

Here in the UK this takes place at the end of the month.  One good thing about this is that I find it easier to remember than I would a date mid-month!

In the fall our clocks also go back at the end of October, too.  (Although we generally refer to it as the autumn season, the saying 'Spring forward, fall backwards' really helps to remember which way around this takes place).

Yes, we do!

I'm glad you remembered to get to this. I didn't remember about doing it until it would have been really inconvenient to log back in and do it.

That is closer to what it used to be in the US. They added 2-3 weeks to DST a few years back.
