* "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.

... Rhuadan used to have his calendar available (I think it still is).

 
Seems to be, along with quite a bit of accompanying material - his site is Of Thespiae; look under 'Hellenismos Resources' in the top-bar dropdown menu for the calendar and some stuff, and scroll down the sidebar to see posts related to calendar/festivals. (Though Ruadhán has an account on TC, he is here only very occasionally, so I figured I'd go grab the link.)

Enjoy the ride! It is a wild one ;-) I've been in your position so I know how you feel. If you need help, you can always ask, either here, through PM or my gmail e-mail address 'baring.the.aegis'. Also, please remember you don't have to figure out every festival in your first full year; take your time. It'll all fall into place.

I know I have been inactive on the forum since I posted here last and I'm making up for it a bit tonight but that is because of the New adventure I was going through and after tonight's hymns I felt a desire whether intrinsic or extrinsic to publicly Thank Elani for so much. So I guess the best way to say it is Thank you, I have already learned so much from reading your blog and through our correspondence that I have had to reread parts of it daily to make sure I remeber it. You are an amazing guide on this journey and I can only hope to be blessed with more of your kindness and more people as generous in my new adventure.

Hellenion is a good organization and their calendar is good as well. You can find mine at the link below, which gets updated when research calls for it.

http://baringtheaegis.blogspot.com/p/festivals-by-month.html

The current date, both modern as well as ancient Hellenic, is always displayed in one of the boxes to the side. For more detailed instructions, please see here:

Thanks for these links. One thing I have problem with in following a Hellenic path is that there's so many different festivals, many with dates that don't correspond very well to a our calendar or that have completely unknown dates. I'm still trying to figure it out in my own path, and sift through the ones I find personally relevant to me and my life, but it's difficult for sure.

I did find one site last week that I am not entirely sure on the validity of http://www.Hellenion.org/calendar.html which has a fairly detailed calendar, but I don't know if i should keep looking or not.
Their calendar is mostly okay, and is accurate (as far as I can tell) to the Attic festival calendar. Problem for me is, I don't live in Athens so I don't feel connected to it. The climate's different, the framework for the year is different, and much of it is very specific to Athens' foundation and history. For instance, the Athenian spring festival is in what would be February.
I'm in the process of making my own festival calendar, framed around American and Louisville-specific holidays and traditions. As each polis made their own festival calendars based around their own traditions.
In addition, I plan on celebrating traditional Celtic festivals in parallel; in large part because many of my ancestors were Celts and I feel that I ought to worship the gods of my ancestors. But that is, as I said, a parallel thing. As far as my Hellenistic worship goes, I am going to frame my festivities around daily practice, local and national festivals, and periodic cult practice towards specific gods.
