* "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.

And I don't see why they couldn't be used to escape the hordes from the upper storey window?  I mean apart from the fact that as you start piling them up to cushion your fall you're probably going to be seen and then the horde are just going to steal your crash mat & run off with it...

Didn't the Mythbusters do a prison escape myth where they braided TP into ropes?

I don't remember that episode, though I am pretty sure they did do one where they braided something or other into ropes (I can't recall what, now).

They also did an escape from Alcatraz episode (I think the rope on that occasion was something to do with the silk from a parachute - though, again, I may be confusing two separate myths).  The escape was meant to have been done with a duct tape boat I believe, which IIRC did work on the episode.

I think it's not known whether the escapees ever made it or not, though like many of these things there are lots of theories.  It was a good episode.


PS I found half a roll of the real cheap TP they supply at work lingering around the apartment, and I'm going to start my Covid-19 journal now - I'll keep you updated (PPS I didn't steal it, I borrowed it for my streaming nose on the train home when I had a cold one time, and evidently forgot to take the rest back the next day!  Honest!).

I just had to share this with you - woman gets Dear John (Jane?) letters from her family on TP!
