* "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.

Update time again!


01. Finish coursework. (Seriously, this has to get done.)
I have 1,695 pages left. Blah.

02. Get a transcription job.
Waiting on item #1.

03. Read 2 books off the Religious shelf and post notes/thoughts on blog.
Started the reread of Greek Religion.

04. Read 2 books off the Fiction shelf & 2 from the Non-Fiction shelf.
2 of 2 for fiction, 0 of 2 for non. I'm several chapters into Packing for Mars by Mary Roach.

05. Learn how to ride the damn bike.
I'm calling this one a fail for the season. Sigh.

06. Finish 2 beaded pieces.
It is very nearly finished but I haven't touched it since I started to crochet. :/ I will have to get back to it ASAP, since there's only a little more than a month left to the season!

07. Photograph pots for etsy.
Still sitting untouched in my trunk.

08. Write, damnit. (1k a month would be great.)
No progress at all.

09. Develop habit of weekday exercise.
Does thinking about exercise count? :ashamed:

10. Figure out what the hell I'm doing wrong wrt religious cycle and fix it.
I'm in "fix-it-fix-it-fix-it!" phase, as Fry would say. Not much to report yet.

Ummm...I'm new to this idea...but really like it!  When will you be starting Season 4?  I'd like to start doing some prep work to be able to join in on the next one.

You can also find my ramblings at my blog although I\'m not the best at regular updates.  I\'m working on fixing that. Or look for me on FB here or Google+ here. :)

We start new threads every season, on the Solstices and Equinoxes.   The last seasonal thread for this year will begin on September 23rd and run through December 21st.  

I usually try to start the new thread a few days before the season starts, so that initial lists can be posted before the 'official' kick-off.  I'll post a link in this thread when I create the one for next season.  

I really need to start thinking about next season myself.  Right now my entire list is "NaNoWriMo and Fall Road Trip", which accounts for what I'll be doing for a month and a half of the season. I think I can probably squeeze in a couple more projects.

I'm a little behind with my updates, but here goes...
  • Walk and/or run at least five miles per week. - On hold, at least until I can chat with my doctor about the pain in my foot.  If I've done what I think I have, this goal will be a massive fail and will probably not be obtainable any time in the foreseeable future. :o


 
I don't have much in the way of updates, except to say that the above goal does appear to be a failure.  I'm waiting for final diagnosis from a podiatrist this week, but it appears that I've done some damage to my foot by running and walking (most likely either a stress fracture or neuroma).  In any case, my walking/running schedule has been nixed indefinitely.  

I think this may be a first for me - working on the goal actually caused me to fail it.  Epic fail. :(

This almost not worth updating, as I spent the past week sick in bed...

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

2 of 2 for fiction, 1 of 2 for non. I finished Packing for Mars and I plan to start Founding Brothers today.

05. Learn how to ride the damn bike.

06. Finish 2 beaded crafted pieces.
I've decided to edit this goal into crafted pieces instead of just beaded pieces; when I started this season, beading was my only craft, but I have since taught myself to crochet! And completed a very long scarf, at that, so I'm halfway there!

07. Photograph pots for etsy.
Still sitting untouched in my trunk.

08. Write, damnit. (1k a month would be great.)
No progress at all.

09. Develop habit of weekday exercise.
No progress here either.

The stats are status quo from last week.   I've accomplished a lot this week, just nothing from my list.  Hope someone is making some progress!

Hmm, we seem to have really stalled this season and this thread seems to be in a coma at the moment.  

Since we're nearly at the end of the season, I'll pose the obvious question: Is there any interest in continuing this for another season?
