* "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.

I feel like I should have been able to cross off a lot more this week. I'm officially out of spoons, however.

I think I'll finish this now.

Spiritual

1. Daily water offering to the Ancestors


2. Stop forgetting the offerings for Mercury!  
3. Resume the Ritual Meal - at least on full and black moons - so twice a month.


These two I failed. Must try more.


Job

4. Stop worrying.

Health
 
5. Remember the gym you signed up at? Move your lazy butt there, damn it! -

Writing

6. Do it. That's all. Stop worrying about the network part, the blog part - focus on the WIP!

Makes it:

6 goals

4 done
2 failed

Is there interest in continuing this for another season?

I may be wrong about this, but I have the impression that interest in this particular set of threads has been steadily waning.  This time last year, we had 14 thread participants.  This season, there are a total of 6 and two of those have not posted anything after their initial lists.

Thoughts?  Ideas?

I think you're right there.
If you make another thread for Season 4, I'll play, but I can live without it, too.

I should add to this that I also keep track of my own list elsewhere, so the threads themselves are non-essential for me.

I myself will be dropping out- for whatever reason it's just not helping me anymore.

Understood. I still find the actual goal-setting helpful, but the threads have ceased to be an incentive for me to work on them.  Not good.

No, not at all essential anyway.

My own thoughts at this point are:  Unless a) a lot of enthusiastic folks come out of the woodwork by Saturday (aka Equinox) to say they want to join or b) a single enthusiastic person decides that they want to do the posting of these threads (starting, stat keeping, etc),  this will be the last of these threads.

They've been running for a while, haven't they?

I dropped out a while ago: they stopped being helpful for me, and frankly, I don't do a lot of goal-setting anymore. That may be a simply a side-effect of being much busier this summer than normal, but it may also be a sign of something deeper. :(

I had to check the old board to see how far back these went: Fall 2007.  :eek:  I didn't think it had been quite that long.

FWIW, I think that many of us feel like these threads have stopped being a useful tool, although the reasons vary. Personally, I find that my goal-setting is far better organized using the toodledo website than trying to post a condensed list here.  I need these kinds of lists to keep me on track, particularly when I'm busy.  Otherwise, I tend to not get anything done!

Wow, that's long. A bit of a pity, that such a 'tradition' is going to end.

I think what made them useful was the 'public' pressure you built up with posting and up-dating your lists. But when you're just not managing and you even forget to update here, that benefit is gone.

Also: thanks for the link, gotta check out the website. I'm having notebooks full of lists and use Goggle calendar.

1. Lose 25 pounds  (24/25)
2. Finish reading The Arabian Nights
3. Devotional work 5 days of the week (FAIL)
4. Fill one sketch book
5. Catch up on RAK ATCs

I doubt I'll post in another thread. I also track elsewhere.

Pst... you can link your ToodleDo account into your Google calender so that you can access your task lists from the calendar.
