  • Re: Reverse captcha

    [quote user="anonymous235"]True, but it still shows lack of knowledge on what a captcha actually does. Because if you're trying to do an anti-spam system based on that (there are many sites that use one) you just add "type XYZ here to continue", or an invisible field, some javascript checks, whatever. You don't need to ...

  • Re: Just right? What's that?

    [quote user="stinerman"] I've got a card that gives 5% back on "books". They classify Amazon.com as a book store, so everything I buy there is 5% off. Plus the 5% on gas and groceries makes it pretty killer. [/quote]  What card gives 5% on groceries?  Best I've been able to find without an annual fee ...

  • Re: Protecting the truly important stuff

    [quote user="dhromed"] [quote user="snoofle"] the key to the men's room[/quote]  You say this as if it's normal to lock down toilets. [/quote]  Pretty common around here, especially in buildings shared by multiple companies, where the restrooms are in the hallway.  I always assumed it had something ...
