So, the idea is that one of the Recaptcha words is the real password, and one is a word from a book Recaptcha is being paid to digitize. If you want to read my rants about this, just check out the 'recaptcha' tag for parts 1 to 3.
My previous approach was to try and guess which was not the password and type 'slave' in this space. This approach has become increasing unsuccessful. My new strategy is to not type the last letter of both words. This works every time.
And if one of those words is actually a password, it shouldn't work, should it? Hmmm?
Researcher Cracks ReCAPTCHA
Saturday, October 2, 2010
In Rapunzel Syndrome the girl doesn't through her resources/hair out into the world to achieve adulthood, she draw it into herself to cause illness and even death. I suppose I could consider the naming deeply ironic riff on a mythic trope, but it seems more likely that it is simply glib. That someone took hair + girl and came up with = Rapunzel, without doing a lot of research.
Hence my irritation because I think, deeply and fundamentally, that girls should act boldly upon the world, that myths and fables should be respected, and that scientists should do their research. And if they did and the destructive force of female 'failure to launch' is the very point of the name... I stand corrected.
