* "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.

The ninth anniversary of one of the saddest days in the history of The  Cauldron is almost upon us. If you were a member of The Cauldron any  time from about 2003 to early 2006, you will remember Chavi (aka  Storyteller Cat and, in offline life, Cathlene Patricia McKenna) and  starting in early 2005, her ever positive reports on her battle with a  rare form of cancer. (Some of these posted used to be available on our  2005 Archive Board -- but the software it ran on does not support modern  versions of PHP.) The odds were against her from the beginning, but  that did not stop her from fighting hard to try to be one of the rare  survivors. And for a time it looked like she really might overcome those  long odds. Unfortunately, it wasn't to be so. We lost Chavi on April 1, 2006.

Elspeth, one of the founders of this board passed over on April 19,  2010, after years of fighting congestive heart failure and other medical  problems which kept her offline except for generally brief spells for  the last five or six years before her death. She was a major participant  here in the early years of this board and her posts can be found on our  old Delphi forum. Some of her poetry and other writings can in old  issues of our newsletter and in the Samhain section of our web site. The  Cauldron would have never started if Elspeth had not wanted a forum to  replace a small mailing list, The Grove, which she ran.

Marilyn (aka Absent) needs no introduction to recent members of this  board. She was a long time active member of this board with many posts  to her credit up until she suddenly passed on February 16th last year.  She was a long time staff member whose expertise on the Tarot was  appreciated by all.

 
It's almost 8 here, and candles have been lit for TC's akhu, Chavi, Elspeth and Marilyn. One thousand of bread, one thousand of beer and one thousand of every good thing for each of them.

If you want to participate, please post in here. Everyone, regardless of  religion, is welcome to participate. If you can't participate at 8pm  your time, feel free to pick a different hour, I can promise you that  neither Chavi, Elspeth, nor Marilyn would have been sticklers about the  time.

I'm in. I didn't know them, but I love the Cauldron, and I'm grateful for all the people that invested their time into making it what it is.

Fortunately, we found ours last week. We'll be lighting a candle later this morning that should burn until we go to bed (about 10pm CDT).

Our candle was lit about noon CDT and will remain lit until we go to bed. TC is a much poorer place without Chavil, Elspeth, and Marilyn. It's hard to believe we have managed as well as we have without them.

It's 8:30 here and I'm lighting the candles. My best wishes to them and those who knew them.

A Texas-sized thank you to everyone who lit a candle for Chavi, Elspeth, and Marilyn.
