* "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.

My introduction: with the goal of making friends
« on: March 06, 2019, 11:15:04 pm »
How to make friends as an adult? A process that comes as easily to children as breathing, but in my 30s I'm finding it difficult. I've managed to finish up my bachelor's (it only took me 13 years!) and looking around I see that I've surrounded myself with excellent study buddies and lab partners and the smartest people I have ever met. But these bonds aren't likely to last beyond our last, sweet semester together.

I've also wandered quite far from my path and now is the time to recommit to a daily practice. I hope to find inspiration here, and answers to those questions of practicality that plauge me as a solitary. But mostly I'm looking for friendships that last. That are built on respect and kindness and love and an understanding that differences are wonderful.

I'll take a page from my inner 7 year old and ask the question I really want to know.

Do you want to be my friend?

Hi! Welcome! I'm sure you'll make lots of friends here!
"The worshippers of the gods go to them; to the manes go the ancestor-worshippers; to the Deities who preside over the elements go their worshippers; My devotees come to Me." ... "Whichever devotee desires to adore whatever such Deity with faith, in all such votaries I make that particular faith unshakable. Endowed with that faith, a votary performs the worship of that particular deity and obtains the fruits thereof, these being granted by Me alone." - Sri Krishna

Hi MonotonousLark, and welcome from me too - I'm sure of this, too  :)

If I ever figure out how to use discord I'll be happy to join! Perhaps I'll bug my brother into helping me set it up.

Thank you all for the kind welcome!!
