* "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.

Please pray for peace
« on: April 11, 2013, 02:35:52 am »
I'm still a relatively new poster, and have been vague about where I am.  I am on Guam, which is stated is a probable target for North Korea.  

I just came out of a meeting here at work for what we should do to prepare for possible attacks- bombs, chemicals or nukes.  We were instructed to put together kits of needed items, and have our inside room to shelter in.  

We joke around, and plan to just jump on the boat and head out, but there is fear.  People here remember WWII, when the Japanese bombed the island and occupied it for several years.  We all hear terrifying stories from older family members of that brutal time.  The invasion beaches have numerous memorials for the US soldiers that fought to take the island back.  War's memory is still here.  Heck, we still find WWII bombs and bullets while working in the garden!

Please join me in praying that war does not come to Guam, or Japan, or South Korea, or anywhere else.

Very scary.  May you, and those around you, be safe.

Thank you.  We are going about our days, getting normal things done.  Some people are very scared.  Let's hope that this resolves quickly!

Hopefully, North Korea is bluffing again and China will continue to sit on them. But prayers for peace are an excellent idea.

Absolutely, you have my prayers. This is a scary time and I hope you and yours are okay.
Maker, though the darkness comes upon me,
I shall embrace the light. I shall weather the storm.
I shall endure.
What you have created, no one can tear asunder.

That's definitely a scary thing to have to live with. You and y'all are in my thoughts.

Thank you.  It seems to be getting better.  Maybe things are calming down.  We now have brand-new missiles to intercept anything sent our way.  Plus, the rest of the world is telling them to chill.
