and again?

ohhhhhhhhh yes…the damn spambots found a way to bypass all measures agorf had taken. So it was time for the gd library to come in handy.

Let’s see how long it will take until the spambots find ways to figure out text out of images…I am not sure if I really want this to happen or not …If it happens it will be a great improvement for AI in general…but all that authentication measures based on images will go down the drain….

Btw I’ve learned today that gentoo is not a “random” word for a distro…but rather a “penguin race”…You can find some info here:
