* "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.

Barbie's over 150 jobs vs her measurements?
« on: June 22, 2014, 08:36:52 am »
Barbie Just Got A Brand New Job, And It Could Be Her Toughest Yet The Huffington Post  | By Harry Bradford Posted: 06/20/2014

Barbie has over 150 jobs on her resume. She’s been a football coach, a doctor and even president. But her latest gig might be her toughest challenge yet.  Mattel, all-powerful Barbie maker, announced Wednesday that Barbie will be trying her luck as a tech entrepreneur. But compared to Ken, Barbie's life as a woman in Silicon Valley will be quite the challenge.

For one, she’ll be outnumbered.

With over 150 jobs, (who knew), does that make her a role model?  Or is her measurements still more important?

As a woman working on an IT degree, can I just remind everyone, it's HuffPo. Don't read the comments.

That what is no sense must be nonsense.

False dichotomy, bad question.

If she looked different, she wouldn't be /Barbie/.  she'd be a different doll.  "which matters more" implies separability that isn't there.

Can't get a good answer with a bad question.
