* "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.

You know you're getting old when

I thought this might be an amusing thread to have.  So here we go:

You know you're getting old when: you see a kid with his pants pulled down to just below his ass and you have the irresistible urge to yank them back up into their proper place.

Oh yes.

You know you're getting old when: they play one of your favorite songs in the radio and then announce to the world 'That was an oldie'. :whis:
\'You had to repay, good or bad. There was more than one type of obligation.
That’s what people never really understood.….Things had to balance.
You couldn’t set out to be a good witch or a bad witch. It never worked out for long.
All you could try to be was a witch, as hard as you could.\'
Terry Pratchett \'Lords and Ladies\'

Confuzzled and proud. :p

You know you're getting old when you realize your daughter is only a few months shy of when you first got pregnant (she'll be 26 next month).
Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

You know you're getting old when you can't believe how long it's been since you graduated high school.

You know you're getting old when you can remember when it was just Anne Rice and Laural K. Hamilton ruining vampire literature.  And you remember it fondly!

You know that you are getting old when you are telling your kids how much easier they have it than when you were their age and they remind you that it was over 2 decades (or more) ago!

You know you're getting old when you can remember watching Saturday morning tv shows that were Captain Kangaroo, the Cosby Kids, The Smurfs (yes children, they were actually a cartoon!), and The Bugs Bunny and Tweety Show.

You're also getting old when you remember watching Buck Rogers, CHiPs and The Incredible Hulk!
