* "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.

I don't think I'm gonna make it tonight. Too many things compounding mean fewer spoons for me. :( Ah, oh well. I've been informed that next year will be the tenth anniversary of UAN--I suppose I'll just go all out for that one! ;)

Good luck to you all! and to all a good night

Ni-ni, HH! :D

It's well and truly daytime by now, although, in honoured British tradition, the sun is nowhere to be seen. Too cloudy and grey and blargh.

I ended up not having to go in this morning. Normally I'd grumble at having to be up before dawn for nothing, but this time I got the chance to check in with you again, so not all that bad. Plus, early bird present shopping, before it gets too crowded.

Dare I admit that after all these years, I finally tried the infamous Chocolate Mug Cake for the first time? Quick and easy, and not bad; I swapped in an extra tablespoon of cocoa (Valrhona, no less) instead of that third tablespoon of sugar, and it came out pretty well.

 
I haven't yet got around to trying it myself - I don't have all that much of a sweet tooth, so I'm very likely to want something savory to eat rather than something sweet. But your adaptation (kitchen-tested!) might well tempt me, if not tonight, then next year (or later this winter), because I do have a 'chocolate tooth'.

Well done, Chatelaine! Did you stay conscious all the way through?
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

Thanks for joining in, HH...and is it really 10 years next year? Can anybody confirm? (I realize that I oughtta know since I run it every year, but I really don't have a clue.)

If it is, we'll have to plan something special.

I always remember, because it's not quite a year younger than the Cauldron Cill, which is about to have its tenth anniversary (and I'm Hawke's informant). But, here, have a confirmation in the form of the very first UAN thread, on the archive forum.

I agree that we should plan something special!

I'm realizing that I haven't yet posted the exact moment of solstice:
10:44 UTC
(5:44 AM Eastern time for North America)


THE MOMENT OF SOLSTICE has arrived!

Happy solstice, everyone! Have a great start to winter (here in the North) and to summer (you lucky dogs in the global South)

Okay, I'm awake all right. I was anyway (having been fortunate enough to be able to sleep until 1600ish yesterday), but now I really am.

If you mean all the way through the night, no, of course not - though, on just under six hours of sleep, I feel like I did! I'll have to sneak a nap later, because I'm cooking dinner and I wouldn't trust myself around a fire or sharp implements as I am.

Lyric and I are up again. The sun isn't and will not officially be up for another hour. We should see light well before then, however.

Welcome back, Randall and Lyric!

Here in NYC, the sky grows light (although overcast). About 20 minutes to go...

Made it! Easiest UAN yet for me. Sleep now; I'll check back in later.

Good luck to the rest of you still hanging in there!

I passed out sometime after 5:40 this morning after getting some writing done on my tablet. And I was a good muffin and backed it all up to my desktop. Hardcopies will get printed later today and added to the binder for that project. Why yes, I am paranoid about losing yet another project to the freaky technology failures that repeatedly crop up whenever I am involved.

I think I will close my solstice day by spending some time cleaning up my little magical office/workroom. Assuming my back will allow it.
