* "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.

Linode has announced that there are going to have to do XEN security updates in the near future. This will require setting down the server we are on for up to 2 hours. It will then be rebooted (but the MUX will NOT automatically come back up -- and it may take me many hours to get to it depending on when the reboot happens.  

The service window for our server starts at 03:00 AM on March 6th.  I do not know for sure what time zone the 3 AM is but I am assuming UTC (aka GMT) which would be 5pm Central Time March 5th , I think.

If the 0:300 AM is UT, then that's 9 pm CST on 5 Mar.

I surmise that means chat will be down all night next Thursday night.

That would be most likely. I'll try to check the time today.
