* "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.

In Memoriam, 30 June 1971

The Soviet space mission Soyuz 11 was launched on June 7th, 1971. It carried three cosmonauts to the orbiting Salyut 1 space station; the only crew to successfully use it. After more than three productive weeks in space, the crew manned their Soyuz spacecraft to return to Earth. During the re-entry, a series of explosive bolts fired simultaneously instead of sequentially as had been intended. The resulting extra stress broke open a seal on a critical cabin ventilation valve, and cabin pressure was lost within a matter of seconds. The crew was found dead of asphyxiation after an otherwise normal re-entry. These three cosmonauts are the only men known to have died while actually in space.
