* "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.

Exeter University to study best way to summon fairies and demons

Quote
Researchers from the University of Exeter have launched a new study to examine collections of 15th to 17th-century spell books and grimoires that gave instructions on how to summon and conjure fairies, demons and other spirits.

It sounds as if they're just going to be studying the writings themselves without attempting to put them to practical use. Good; I would suspect that spiritual personalities do not lend themselves to "study" as readily as do, say, three-toed sloths....

I dunno, I suspect some of them would be into it. Just gotta know who you're summoning, right?

Oh, yes. And no spiritual personality would EVER pretend to be someone/something he's not...right?
