* "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 have a Doctor Who ice cube tray that makes three TARDISes and three Daleks. You can also use it as a chocolate mould; it's made out of silicone. It was a Christmas present from my sister-in-law.


Are they bigger on the inside? ;)

Ah, okay. First thing that comes to mind, then, is ouzo.

Pastis does as well.  

Interesting fact that I just learned: the louche is also called the ouzo effect.

So the anise must be a factor, and Sambuca should behave similarly. Now I have to try this FOR SCIENCE!

And the result is: It worked! In fact it worked immediately, which surprised me since I was expecting to add a lot of water before I saw any change.

I found an article about the chemistry of it. Favorite quote: "your cocktail is made of nanotechnology."
