reCAPTCHA redux posted: Fri 2012-04-13 12:45:31 tags: tech
If you Google "recaptcha", the second suggested search-term expansion is "recaptcha cracked". This mainly leads to a fluffy article that pits one field expert's assertion that reCAPTCHA can be cracked, against Google's rebuttal that the crack demo is based on an outdated implementation of reCAPTCHA. This, dated January 2011, and some mid-year buzz from a handful of vBulletin operators saying they're suddenly getting a lot of successful spambot registrations through their reCAPTCHA wall - so either they wer...

Session 98, part 1: 3 passes on the Cybex circuit just to get back in the swing. My last weight-lifting session was Tue of last week, and I'd described even that session as "suboptimal", so my expectations were low and I wasn't out to make it hurt anyway. arm curl: 10-12x 30# chest press: 12x 90# ab crunch: 12-16x 90# arm extension: 12x 50# row: 10-12x 70# / rear delt 10-12x 30# (3 alternating subsets on 2nd pass) leg curl: 12x 70# leg press: 12x 230# After some clienttiemz, I returned for a run....

Breakfast: maybe half a serving of Northland "berry berry maqui", which despite its label claims of "overflowing with antioxidants", provides 100%DV of C and maybe ~10-15%DV of A and E. At 30g of sugar per serving, it's pretty empty calories, so I won't be going that route again. Brunch: a powersauce because I was feeling seriously hungry, and I knew I wanted to hit teh gym, but I also knew that anything substantial I picked up in my travels was going to be too heavy to exercise on comfortably. Dropped... (...more)

There's also a Fresh Market up that way (where the credit union branch was supposed to be), and I'd bet a patchoulli-reeking hippie they carry quinoa, so I'll have to check that out next time I'm up that way. A client approached me about implementing a CAPTCHA system on their web contact form. So there's another trick I'll be adding to my toolbox. Google Code has some resources, including reCAPTCHA, although reCAPTCHA is sometimes too difficult for actual humans so I'm not so sure I'll go that directio... (...more)

1. The branch of my credit union that used to be caddy-corner across the intersection is now a different credit union branch. Boo. 2. The Pubilx by me doesn't carry quinoa. I asked a pack of stock clerks in the rice and beans aisle and none of them had even heard of it. Maybe at the big fancy Pubilx at the corner of Glades; they have a much bigger Greenwise section. (This shouldn't surprise me too much, since in the 3 months I've been shopping there, they also only once had the sausage variety of Jose O... (...more)
