2019 Donation Drive

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise at least $650 (same as last year) to keep The Cauldron's server online for another year. Please help! Either hit that Paypal button to the right and make a one-time donation in any amount or set up a monthly Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor subscription. You can find more info in this message!

Donations as of 13 Sept 2019: $656 donated. $6 more our minimum goal! Let's beat last year's total of $99 more than the minimum!


Note: This total is updated manually, usually once a day


* "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.

Mom's going back on chemo tomorrow
« on: October 30, 2014, 08:32:12 am »
So after a few weeks of rest, Mom will spend her Fridays getting chemo. This time, she's likely going to be part of a study that includes a new drug, to test the effectiveness of that combined with standard chemo vs. just the standard treatment. The side effects look like a mix of what she got last time and some stuff that's more worrying. I know they'll stop treatment the instant they learn she's not reacting well, but I still worry. Just wanted to ask if people could offer prayers and good vibes during this rather nail-biting treatment.
I love a good metallurgical take on the phrase "What the F---?"

:cf::cf::cf: that this treatment proves to be effective for her, with minimal side effects.
