Master Hacker Abdul is on the job! :)

Capcha is shut down, so just type in "foo", and you're in.

Just tried it. Not planning to do anything with it, just proof of concept.

Try it.

The Capcha site is down, so they let you through by default if you put something in.

I've posted non-controversially three times (awaiting moderation).

We'll see. :p

I forgot. You need to ask for the sound first.

Type what you hear.

Unless this is an amazing coincidence. ;)
