* "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.

Green jackets for women. For some, it was a long time coming.
« on: August 21, 2012, 09:21:52 am »
NEW YORK -- The home of the Masters now has green jackets for women.

In a historic change at one of the world's most exclusive golf clubs, Augusta National invited former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and South Carolina financier Darla Moore to become the first female members since the club was founded in 1932.

"This is a joyous occasion," chairman Billy Payne said Monday.

For some, it was a long time coming.

Interesting choice for the first female members, the quest is how many more will be invited, or is this the total consession.

Well, when the CEO of your major sponsor is a woman, I guess it's time to concede the battle. Interesting that they didn't invite a woman on the pro-golf circuit, though.

I suspect that once they have their foot in the door, more will be admitted in the future. It's really hard to go backward on something like this.

True but how long until the next one is invited?
