Today, I read a blog, right through to the end, looked at and enjoyed all the pictures, enjoyed the tale of the task being shared, and then wanted to make a comment. It was a great task, a wonderful tale, terrific pictures, beautiful result.
I wanted to tell the writer how much I liked the result of her hard work and artistic talent. So I told her. Then clicked 'publish'. And that darn Captcha popped up - two words, right? Wrong. A word - or rather a bunch of letters strung together that make no sense whatsoever, and look weird to boot - and a picture. Now what am I supposed to do with a picture? The picture contained one number - was that maybe the 'word'? Well, all I could do was try. So I strung together the letters as best I could read them, all the while hoping that, in fact, they were the correct letters, pressed the space bar, then typed the number (not the word but the actual digit, and it was a single digit), and pressed 'publish' again.
Lo and behold - that was exactly what was wanted! Hmmm..... They could always put a picture of a single digit number, or 2 of them if that's what they want - much, much, much easier than trying to figure out what those letters really are
Have any of the rest of you ever run across a Captcha like that?
If you want to see the task, take a look here. Didn't she do a great job?
