* "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.

Astronauts escape malfunctioning Soyuz rocket
« on: October 11, 2018, 09:25:32 am »
An astronaut and a cosmonaut are safely back on the ground after their rocket had some type of issue when the second stage separated for the first stage. The Soyuz rocket is one of the most reliable on the planet. The last time there was major failure like this on a manned flight was back in 1983 (and again the crew was recovered safely).

VERY glad to hear that the crew was recovered safely. One disturbing note that one of the news stories mentioned was the sabotage recently discovered on the last Soyuz; I hope that we don't have any severely disgruntled employees in the launch vehicle preparation stream.
