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 16 Sept 2019: $660 donated. $10 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.

Math problem question
« on: April 27, 2014, 11:17:29 pm »
Okay something came up and I need to know roughly what day(s) are 2-2 1/2 weeks from 4/6/2014 and also 2-2 1/2 weeks from 4/13/2014. I can't figure it out.

I've never been a math person. I'm thinking the time period would range from now 4/27- about 5/5/14 but I could be wrong.

I'm confused. Do you need to know something that looking at a calendar can't answer?

Two weeks (14 days) from the 6th would be the 20th. Half a week is 3.5 (aka 3 to 4) days, so 2.5 weeks from the 6th would be April 23 or April 24. From the 13th would be 13+14+(3 or 4, so April 30th or May 1st.
