* "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.

From BBC News:
Quote
Video-game pioneer Ralph Baer has died at the age of 92.

Mr Baer is widely seen as the "father of video games" for his pioneering work that led to the creation of the Odyssey games console.

Read the rest of the story here.

*************************************************************
I was lucky enough to participate in a phone interview of Mr. Baer for a video game documentary project.  He was an amazing man, and will be very much missed.

A thousand of bread,
A thousand of beer,
A thousand of every good thing!
May Ralph Ascend!  And may those who love him be comforted.
