* "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.

Not making a lot of progress here. :o

01. Finish coursework, and get a job.
Still struggling along.

02. Read 6 books off of the fun shelf, and 3 off of the religious shelf.
Read 3 fun books (Alcestis; Peter Pan; The Graveyard Book) and 2 religious books (Red Land, Black Land; Seth: God of Confusion).

03. Write 5,000 words. Participate in NaNoWriMo! (I don't have to win, but I do have to make an actual effort to write on at least 3/4ths of the days, which is 23 of 30.)
Modifying this goal somewhat.

04. Complete 3 craft projects that are not religious pieces.
1 of 3- the scarf is done! Next up is the secret project. :D:

05. Complete 3 craft projects that are religious pieces.

06. Acquire supplies for cill exchange, make it, and mail it on time!
Fail. My first idea did not work out properly, and I did not give myself enough time to come up with a second idea, get the materials and make it and ship it on time. And since I just screwed up my arm/shoulder yesterday, finishing it is going to be even more difficult. Sigh.

07. List something on Etsy.

08. Exercise at least 15 minutes at least 3 times a week for 6 straight weeks.

09. Read through 'Aventures d’Alice au pays des merveilles.'

10. Attempt to make macarons at least 3 times.

11. Test drive the car I want; if I don't like it, start looking again.

1. Book a venue where we can get married and then feed our guests. Reception venue booked, ceremony venue still up in the air.  Half-done!
2. Book an officiant.
3. Find a dress.  Returned the dress.  Heavy and structured is so not me.  A friend has agreed to go dress shopping with me at some point.  Considering a long and flowy chiffon dress that is violet, because I'm not convinced that white is me, either.
4. Finish the cardigan for friends' daughter, preferably by her birthday.
5. Develop a meditative practice.   WIP.
6. Read a book that is not school-related.  Working my way through Trance-Portation, but not sure if I'm going fast enough to finish before the season ends.  May need to hit up the library for something fun and easy.
7. Get a job.
8. Buy a loft bed. Done!
9. Get straight A's this term-- grades should be published by 12/21.
10.  Fill out application to Phi Theta Kappa and turn it in by 11/11. Squee!

I'm changing #3 - I want to finish this pattern more than I want the sweater done.  So #3 is finish this pattern so I can get it out to test-knitters. :)

I'm going to give myself a .5 on 1 and 2 so far - so I'm at about 20%?  Ish?  In my happy delusion land? :D

1. Find the couch. The ENTIRE couch.
2. Figure out a solution for swug and implement it until the problem is resolved.
3. Make my sweater all for MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.
4. Get at least one of bigfoot-I-mean-Uli's socks done.
5. Finish this draft of FK book.

 
#4 is FINISHED.  I bound off the sock yesterday, and he tried it on and it fits and he likes it!

#1 - not so good.  there's still a couch there ...

#2 - I'm going to stay at .5 for that one.  There's progress, but we're not resolved.

#3 - DEFINITE progress.  I have the back and edging left to do, and I know how i want it to look, which is a huge hurdle!

and #5 .... FK book.  um.  I figured out what was missing and started writing THAT part .. sooooo .. progress?  I think?

I'm gonna give me a 1.5 out of five.

2. Reach my Goodreads 2011 Reading Challenge goal (7560 books read this year). -- 54 books read this year. Changed because I realized it's November and there's probably not going to be fifteen more books in my future. Unless they are very short. Or I finally finish all the ones I have hanging around

On The Road (Car)
1. Pass emissions test by October 20. -- Done!
2. Register car and get WA plates by November 30.
3. Get an oil change by October 15. -- Done!
4. CHANGED/ADDED: Get WA driver's license by November 20 -- I believe I actually have to do this before I get my car registered here. So, I have to do both this month. Which I hadn't really budgeted for. Le sigh.
