* "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.

Porting my list over with updates...  I haven't been updating because there isn't much to say except "uh, working on it..."
 

1. Determine whether Time Checks is something I want to actually work on, and if so whether I can have all the background work ready in time for NaNo11.

Current status:  Striking the original goal for reasons previously described.  I do not consider myself to have failed because I don't think reevaluating and deciding it's not a realistic goal at this time is failure.  :)  But now I have a new idea, and I need to decide whether it's a viable one.  There are several good arguments against it, but it's also something that might be a good exercise even if it doesn't produce anything I'd ever want to show anyone.  If I do decide to go ahead with it, the timing may possibly be right to do it for NaNoWriMo, so I need to decide about that too.

2.  Read The Mindful Way Through Depression (recommended to me as being good for stress relief too) and evaluate further goals for mental/emotional well-being based on the suggestions contained therein.  (Or, if I decide it's unhelpful, come up with other such goals on my own.)

Current status:  Past the halfway point.  I'm beginning to get a little bit frustrated with parts of it, but overall I think the general idea is helpful.  Haven't really done a lot of the exercises, but they seem helpful.

3.  Finish knitting pseudo-project.  (I started just to get a feel for knitting, with nothing in particular in mind; I think it's becoming a scarf.  Maybe a shortish one.  Maybe it's for Natalie?)

Current status:  Still in progress.

Update time!


01. Finish coursework. (Seriously, this has to get done.)
I have 1,852 pages left- I did 88 this week.  Not as much as I could have done, but better than nothing!

02. Get a transcription job.

03. Read 2 books off the Religious shelf and post notes/thoughts on blog.

04. Read 2 books off the Fiction shelf & 2 from the Non-Fiction shelf.
I read Pyramids by Terry Pratchett, for I'm 2 of 2 for fiction, 0 of 2 for non.

05. Learn how to ride the damn bike.

06. Finish 2 beaded pieces.
I'm 56 rows into the purple/pink bracelet. Out of 100 or so.

07. Photograph pots for etsy.

08. Write, damnit. (1k a month would be great.)
I...have not written a word since my last update. :/

09. Develop habit of weekday exercise.
This has been totally sporadic thanks to the heat.

10. Figure out what the hell I'm doing wrong wrt religious cycle and fix it.
I think my problem was twofold: one, overthinking it and two, trying to jump in full blast. I've simplified and I'm going to be adding one day each cycle.

Where is the strikethrough button?

 
There isn't, at least not that I can find.  The standard strikethrough BBcode doesn't seem to work either.

I've resorted to changing the color of completed items to grey as a work-around.

From what I understood from Googling the issue, Randall (or whoever can implement stuff on the board code) needs to add it in, because VBulletin does support strikethrough code.
