* "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 "".  If it starts with" (or "") you will get this error because "" is not technically the same website as "". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

I hate Jurassic Park and I haven't seen any of the others.
Still going to go see Jurassic World because Chris Pratt.

Finally saw it tonight.

My reactions during it:

Dinosaurs being attacked and/or dying: hiding my eyes and going "no no no no no leave them alone! Don't kill them!"

Dinosaurs attacking humans: "Kill them! Kill them all!"

Summary: too many dinosaurs deaths, not enough human deaths. Most disappointing part: no topless Chris Pratt.

I want a raptor squad. (And a Chris Pratt)

When I was a very wee girl, long before feminist issues were on my horizon,  I remember watching an old Tarzan movie and being disgusted by a woman going into the jungle in high heels then running and tripping. I played in the woods so I pretty well knew how stupid this was.
I love a good cheesy adventure movie as much as the next person, but. I was streaming this today and my 'count the hackneyed trope-o-meter' broke pretty quickly in.
But damn. There was the lead female protagonist running into the jungle in ...high heels. Running in front of a high heels.

So glad I'm not alone on this :

I remember saying something about this while watching it with the family and my 13 yr old son said, "But she's doing an amazing job!"

That's your audience, people. ;)
The pace of progress in artificial intelligence (I’m not referring to narrow AI) is incredibly fast. [...] The risk of something seriously dangerous happening is in the five year timeframe. 10 years at most.--Elon Musk

I am in the camp that is concerned about super intelligence," [Bill] Gates wrote. "First the machines will do a lot of jobs for us and not be super intelligent. That should be positive if we manage it well. A few decades after that though the intelligence is strong enough to be a concern. I agree with Elon Musk and some others on this and don\'t understand why some people are not concerned."
