* "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.

Phone App for Yoruba Divination
« on: July 05, 2011, 12:23:13 pm »
Cutting-Edge Technology for an Ancient Religion

Onaje Woodbine (above right), a PhD candidate in religious studies, has developed an app for iPhones, iPods, and iPads that mimicks the throwing of the chain. Intended as an education tool, not a sacred one replacing the chain, the app shows one of the 256 signatures when a student shakes the handheld device. The app also stores the verses or stories associated with each signature; there are at least four verses per signature, meaning priests must memorize at least 1,000 verses in this oral-tradition religion. There are also drawings by Folasade Woodbine (above left), Yoruba singing, and information about the Woodbines’ teacher, Bishop Ezekiel Soniran Adekunle Lijadu, to whom they dedicate the app.

I wonder if we could get one for the iching or the runes.  This is neato.

I dunno. I would think it would be possible, but I have no idea what would go into creating one.

I think we either need to be app makers, or hope someone with an interest in both decides to get busy, cause I don;'t know how to make one either.

There are apps for both - one called "Rune Magic," and "I Ching - A Personal Reader." There's a Tarot app, too, of course. :)

Now all I need is a phone to use it on.
