* "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.

Mostly in the mornings here we get a turf-war going on between the magpies and the crows

Oh the birdsong I can hear from my window in the morning is most definitely not melodic. These past few weeks there is one particular bird that has a call like a duck being strangled which drowns out all the other bird song, and he does it for like 4 hours straight. Sometimes it irritates me but mostly it makes me laugh because it's so ridiculous.

Once I'm well enough I'm going to go for a walk one morning and follow the sound to see where it lives and what type of bird it is.
