* "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.

Pioneer anomaly explained - and Einstein can rest easy

Well, there's no need to rewrite physics, and it's got nothing to do  with aliens. The unexpected slowing of NASA's Pioneer 10 and 11  spacecraft - the so-called Pioneer Anomaly - has been explained.

The cause turns out to be heat produced by the spacecraft. The problem apparently does not show up on other spacecraft (like the Voyagers) because they don't spin the way the Pioneers do.

This kind of thing is what I call The Corduroy Pants Factor. It might not be photos pushing back against headlight subtly, but in the end, there will be delays.
