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.

Thoughts and prayers for dear friends
« on: April 09, 2013, 01:36:10 am »
A couple of my oldest friends are going through a really tough time right now.  He just had major spinal surgery and is still recovering.  During this time, she was diagnosed with colon cancer and had surgery to remove the tumor today.  They have two young children.

Any help would be much appreciated.  If you need to know their first names, please PM me.  Thanks.

Thanks, Randall (and everyone).  It's killing me not to be closer--they're in Portland and I'm up in Washington.  I wish there were more I could do.

I got word that she's doing well, and that they have lots of physical help from friends and family nearby.  The tumor was well-defined and doesn't seem to have spread beyond the small area of colon where it originally developed.  I'm very hopeful, and very appreciative of any help.  Thank you all so much.
