  • Helping the World One Word at a Time

    Posted on December 20th, 2007 troy 1 comment

    New software has been installed on the website. I have installed it to make the world a little better.

    By entering the words in the box, you are also helping to digitize texts that were written before the computer age. The words that you see were taken directly from old texts that are being scanned and stored in digital format in order to preserve them and make them more accessible to the world. Since some of the words in these texts are difficult for computers to process, we are using the results of your efforts to help decipher them.

    You will notice the new software the next time you leave a comment. And for those of you out there that are already using a CAPTCHA of some sort, I highly recommend you switch to reCAPTCHA.

    P.S. – Sorry for any additional inconveniences this may cause you. If it is a problem, let me know, and I will probably remove the software.

    • As a note to the users, if you don’t know the words in the box, click on the top button (two circular arrows) to get a new challenge. If you type in the wrong words, the page will reload, and you will have to type your comment all over again.
