* "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.

Long Term/Community Devotions?
« on: September 10, 2016, 08:08:44 pm »
I recently felt called to - and began - making monthly meads as a devotional action. A portion of each fermentation is given to the gods and spirits and a similar portion is shared with my community (friends). Every time my batch is ready to drink, some goes on my outdoor altar, some poured toward rocks and trees, and a bottle is given to a different friend.

This feels right and it feels deeply appreciated by everyone involved. Does anyone else have experience with similar devotions/sacrifices that tie long term actions and the community?

I'm not sure if this is what you mean, but I recently transferred to a Library Science program. While this was initially done as a "Plan B" when I flunked out of a graduate history program, it's turning into a deeply spiritual work. I guess that's what happens when your patroness is the goddess of learning, and you go into a field where your job will be the dissemination of knowledge...y'know, helping people learn.
KARMA: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
