Cute kittens are not as stupid as they sound.

It’s about time someone came up with a new way of recognising that someone is human, and not just another script trying to register on your phpNuke website, I mean what the fuck is this supposed to say?

You may have already seen this, but the guys at www.thepcspy.com have come up with a novel way to both check that the user is human and also female (or a Python developer)

Now it might look like a ridiculous idea at first, but when you think about it it’s not as daft as it first appears. At least with this method you don’t have to try and decypher random letters from some garbled image, it much easier & quicker to see 3 cats in amongst squirrels, weasels & beavers, so it saves the user time. You could also customise it to say pick 3 company logos from random images in your product catalogue, or why not have it dislay 3 images of the sites author amongst historical figures?

The act of having to actually click on the images too is another barrier to scripts, until this method becomes more widespread at least, then it’s back to the drawing board trying to keep 1 step ahead of the spammers.
