* "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.

An year old article, but can the effects reported effects reported be caused by the piece?

I think if I played the same half-sheet of music 840 times consecutively, I'd likely start having evil thoughts and hallucinating, regardless of what the piece is.

I'd have evil thoughts about whoever composed the piece and whoever was requesting I play it.

I seem to recall a story about the keeper of an isolated lighthouse that bought his wife a piano that only came with one piece of sheet music.  Though, in that case it was the keeper that went crazy from his wife's playing.

I heard that one too, on a haunted house TV show?

I'm not sure what the show was, but I think you're talking about Seguin Island Lighthouse in Maine.
