Let's Try That Again ...

This blog was going to be my first use of the prototyped CAPTCHA engine I blogged about yesterday, and wouldn't you know it, I overlooked some XSS (cross-site scripting) constraints that needed to be unmangled. Dang it, I wish localhost testing didn't leave us so thoroughly in the dark..

CAPTCHAThisYo.com is actually not working at all. Its demo worked within itself because the engine and the site are on the same domain.

No worries, I'm working around it, it's just gonna take me a bit more work to get past it. It'll till be [almost] as easy to implement CAPTCHA as yesterday's design. More to come ...

Software in all forms is also his sole hobby, whether playing PC games or tinkering with programming them. "I was playing Defender on the Commodore 64," he reminisces, "when I decided at the age of 12 or so that I want to be a computer programmer when I grow up."
