Is this the new Normal? Logged OUT!

Postby sixsix [OP] » May 18th 2020, 10:38pm

Typing in a post this morning failed as I looked at Galleries, older Threads, 5 open or so.
Was logged in this whole time.

3rd attempt to Preview - got this:

Captcha crap 1.jpg


Captcha Crap ? Really ?


So, I tell it I am human / checked the box...
- It takes me here:

Captcha crap 2.jpg

I can hardly see it or them
I have to get my magnifying glass

First it was bicycles, check 3
Submit

Now it wants motorcycles, 2 on top, sm pics... 4 more, kinda' looks like one...
Submit

Back to bicycles...

I give up - never seen this level of mediocrity...
Close it all down, drop Win 10 and all nefarious hangers on... like cookie crap - install updates
Blahh, blah, blah


Get back in - build thread - here we go again - Almost sounds like Mechbob... testing, testing...

Bicycles - F_ _ ... every one of them looked a bit like one.
Guessed wrong twice, finally got the OK, enter box


My God - is this the New Normal? Interesting it would / should come up today...
Just sayin'
Dang, been fighting this half the day - And you know I lost a pretty good size post ...
- the first time I went for the preview. hmmm, better copy and notepad paste.


Sure enough... gone.

I guess you'll never buy Morton's Salt again, huh? When it rains, it pours.

I think it's everywhere today, Mike, not just here. Slow/hanging FB, CL, Bing & Google (Gmail). If it IS some kind of conspiracy, it must be limited to guys named Mike?!

Or Bob

In all seriousness, I have seen that 3 times - real small on the page of an @mazon buy few years back and to join & enter a gun club online silencer auction ( which I won - $40 bucks in ticks ).

Been to quite a few places online for couple decades and have never been challenged while online like that.
Unreal. Spent a year on Ebay/Qual seller, etc, never saw it.

You should have seen the 2 of us , hunched over the 17" HP Lappy w/ the EyeGlass.
It took us so long - we timed out twice.

Damn moped got us 2 times.

Has anyone experienced the "Captcha" requirement to Log back in ?

Does checking the " Log me on automatically each visit " box...
- and staying Logged On keep that from Happening ?

"I see dead people..."

Whoops, wrong movie.

There are a few weird displays that show up on our Laptop and have been there for years.
Is this a good thread to show them or should I start a whole new Topic in Website Concerns?



Maybe talk to the owners...

I stay logged in/log me in automatically. I've never seen a Captcha here.

Got a mouse with a scroll wheel? Control/Scroll might make things bigger on the screen.

Interesting you brought that up - was just looking at / using the zoom / 100% / zoom in feature.

I just knew it was not too late for 2 old dogs to learn something. I called Jeannie over to take a look.
She said, " put that eyeglass down, we're going to see it all now ... ... ".

So we look forward to Captcha now, hunting for ways to test our oleagedness ( new word alert ).
Trying to "Time out" is not an easy or fast thing or proposition.

And about those PC/Laptop touchpads...
yeah, Charlie, found out about the zoom thing ( we call it IndVERTizoom ). And pages going back and forth or rather - side swipes, as Jeannie likes to call them. ( then we use the term ADvertINTSWIPE ). Jeannie likes AShoeintsWIPE. ...gofigure.

Haha - 2 more new words. Yup... pretty bored 'round these parts.

Does anyone else see these:

And again - Do you ever see the CAPTCHA stuff here on the Forum?
Yes or No - have you seen it on this Forum.

I tried to copy and paste what I see, which is remarkably similar to your screenshot. Unfortunately, there is something in all that gibberish that leads me to an OFFSITE page from which I am blocked. In short, I'd say it's not just you.

I've seen the captcha log in before, in fact on a few other sites plus this one.
I guess you shouldn't have changed your avatar. ;)
