How not to design a CAPTCHA

Unfortunately Sony missed the entire point of a CAPTCHA. Instead of using an obfuscated image which is difficult for computers to recognize the characters, they include the CAPTCHA's unobfuscated characters in HTML and use CSS and JavaScript to make the characters appear slightly distorted.

While taking a Digital Image and Video Processing class (EE 371R at utexas.edu), I picked up a summer hobby of writing CAPTCHA breakers. Most CAPTCHAs can be decoded with a combination of Gaussian edge detection and XOR difference analysis with known characters. However this one falls to a simple regex.

Introduction
I recently stopped practicing law to go all in on a small education technology company focused on teacher development that I helped start. We're trying to help teachers grow in a faster and more natural way.

Right now I spend time exploring Philadelphia, drink a lot of coffee, play a lot of guitar, and experiment with technology and the internet.

Do not use Fahrenheit, ever. They're fraudulent, dishonest, and do not perform acceptable work. Their most recent fraudulent business practice was sending me an "invoice" for $200. We did not use them and did not owe them anything; when I called I was told it was the amount we "would owe" if we chose to purchase an annual service plan. No where on the "invoice" did it say that this was optional or that it was for a renewal--it was purely an attempt to trick customers into paying for something they have no intention of paying for. We got burned by Fahrenheit last year when they charged us $900 to fix a perfectly fine furnace. Our heat was out and Fahrenheit told us that it needed new parts and service, and they assured us that it was 100% the problem with the furnace parts. I asked him specifically to check the gas pressure coming into the house and he assured me the pressure was fine. We accepted, but when the heat didn't go back on (surprise!) they told us to contact our gas company. The original parts were perfectly fine and Fahrenheit refused to issue a refund. PGW came that night and fixed the low pressure gas line which was actually the issue. Stay FAR AWAY from this terrible company. They have poor morals and business practices and take advantage of consumers.
