* "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.

No, but I've tried water with some drops of oil and also smoke. Must say, never could see anything with the smoke.

I wonder does it make a difference what medium is used? IMO, it's only an aid to help the seer. Some might prefer water, others marble etc. I must give marble a whirl some day.

I've never tried but i'd have to wonder just which type of marble would you use?  You've got the solid color ones, the clear & color ribbon style, some that look like speckled orbs with flakes in them or actual ceramic balls that are painted.  That doesn't even really touch upon size when you look at regular marbles versus the ones you'd actualy use to shoot marbles.

A number of years ago they had a toy called clackers that were two glass balls that were connected with a cord between them.  The balls were about 2 to 2.5 inches in size and had a pretty good reflective surface.  They weren't around to long as when you started to "clack" with them by smashing the balls against each other the glass would chip and flake but you might find some of those size glass balls.

Still I'd be curious as to what style and size of marbles you'd be considering for usage if nothing more than a discussion point of interest.

I don't see any reason that would not work.
