i wrote about recaptha a few days ago. after it’s been tested by me and several friends who have visited this blog. i found it’s difficult, not just difficult but it’s in the state that could be called as ‘very difficult.’ even i typed the wrong character so many times! the text is not just distorted and twisted, each of them has a strikethrough line crossed which makes it even more difficult to read.

so i’ve decided to take it off for now. however if any of you’re interested, you can get recaptcha plug-in for your blog or site which is now available for wordpress, mediawiki, phpbb, movable type, drupal, and more…

* internet archive scans 12,000 books a month.
* by typing two vocabulary from recaptcha, you can help deciphering images that computer doesn’t recognize.
* recaptcha is a project from the school of computer science at carnegie mellon university.

p.s. personally i think they should create a website for people to voluntarily access and just type the vocabulary directly. i wouldn’t mind going in and type 10 vocabulary everyday.
