* "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 just went to see the new inferno.  It's well done, I think it follows the story ok, although I would need to reread it to be sure.  The one place I'm sure they didn't

I should know better than to assume they follow the book.  just reread the wikipedia synopsis and well........


Maybe I shouldn't have read the book and tried to see the movie.  But the part that irritates me the most is the ending.

I assume by this comment that the movie's ending is different from the book's?

Did they change it a lot? The end was the best part of the book for me
Ashael Rising My debut novel, a tale of a tribal medicine woman, protecting her world from soul-sucking invaders. Crowdfunding now.

From what I'm reading now, they completely changed it and not in what I would consider a good way.

I really hate when film makers do that. I understand the need to condense books to fit into a film, or the need to combine characters or locations but, in my opinion, the plot should pretty much stay the same. Which is why I rarely watch adaptations when I've read the book.

See, I liked it when the bad guy just sort of turns around and say (posthumously) "I wouldn't actually kill half the population.  what did you think?  Shhesh,  birth control.  "

I warned a coworker, then when she said she hadn't read the book, then I was like 'yeah, if you liked davinci code and angels and demons, you'll like inferno.  Just don't go and read the book before you go."

That's the one Langdon book I haven't read.  I wonder why they didn't adapt The Lost Symbol.
Spider Man 3 never happened. And Epstein didn't kill himself.

haven't read that one yet.  maybe it doesn't have the same excitement possibilities of plague, or atomic weapons or the mona lisa.


I do plan to read it though.
