I think they're those boxes with the funny fonts that you're asked to fill in before you can complete a post.

They are supposed to deter spammers.

I don't know how you would make one.

A captcha is a computer program or system intended to distinguish human from machine input, typically as a way of thwarting spam and automated extraction of data from websites.

It will look like this. You enter what you see in the text box. Non humans wont be able to do this and spammers may find it too much of a PITA. As Mike indicated after a certain number of posts you will not be required to complete it. :cheer:

I sent many a new swab looking for the fuse for the magnetic compass...

Of course catching a Sea Bat and keeping it under a galvanized pail always provided some good entertainment when someone would bend over, lift the pail to look underneath...

Ok, true story. And I may not be proud of it.....

When I was stationed on the USCGC Tamaroa in New Castle NH we were assigned a Seamans Apprentice. He was not the sharpest brick out there. One day in port with the USCGC Reliance moored in front of us, We took it upon our self to ease the boredom on a Friday. We told the new guy we had to calibrate the Radar (I was an Electricians Mate but I got a hold of the Electronics Tech to help). We had him wrap himself in aluminium foil (thank you Cooks for helping) and go stand on the dock. The ET started rotating the radar antenna (not emitting) and I got on the loud hailer. I would tell him to raise his right arm slow, then his left, then put them down and raise his right leg, turn around clockwise slow, etc.
This went on for an hour. Then we called the Reliance and asked if they wanted to have fun too.

Told him that since he was so good at it they wanted to calibrate also. It killed a good 2 hours.

I'd tell you what it is, but it's unpronounceable in any human language.
