I am sure your all familiar with captcha codes, the text image you need enter into an input text box to prove your human and not an automated script in order to sign up for a web service.

Such as this: 298.png

The problem is optical character recongition algorithms have amazingly become so advanced that programmers have had to make captchas more difficult to read. Because of this some websites have started asking simple math questions rather than getting the user to type the text in the image, one site has taken this too far, here is a real screenshot of their captcha code: 297.png

This website has the most difficult captcha codes I have ever come across to sign up to their web service.

Link: Quantum Random Bit Generator Service

Reload the sign up page and some of their captchas codes are even more difficult to answer (while some such as finding roots, or evaluating expressions are much easier).

I hate those codes. Even the normal letter ones. They're too hard to see what the letter is sometimes. I've spent ages trying to get one right once.

That maths one though...wtf?

I have no idea what half the crap in that math problem means...

Thats crazy though, the letter ones are bad enough sometimes, now they are going to start throwing equations at us?

Holy shit. Unless they're a site for genuis's then that is way to far. I have registered on some sites that require simple math problems to be awnsered like 4+4, but this is way to far. edit: Now that I see that it is a site for genuis's, then I guess that that actuly is a good measure to take so they don't get bombarded by idiots.

They want you to differentiate the function.

If they mean with the vertical line at the end that x equals zero it's actually rather easy and only looks difficult.

Easy to you maybe, i couldn't solve something like that if my life depended on it.

Math was always my worst subject in school.

Sure its hard, but with the idiots now-a-days, who can blame them? Can't you go to a Math website that were you put in a problem and it gives you the answer or go to a supermarket and you can find a Super Canulator or something ?
