Sony really needs to invest more in their technical staff.

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.

Those who know me well know I'm never in favor of the state intervening with family issues, but this article suggests an interesting and controversial topic.Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States and the second-leading cause of death in the world.

My father is in the medical device field (Previously gastric bypass procedures and now heart/artery related procedures). I encourage all young fatties to continue stuffing their chubby little faces. These little oinkers are indirectly giving me better Birthday and Christmas presents each year. Thank you McDonalds for the McRib and super sizing. In closing, God bless bacon.
