Invisible Captchas

Online forms are convenient, time-saving tools with one annoying trait: the “prove you’re a human” challenge. These pesky little tests (called captchas) originally began as mostly words and numbers, with the text distorted to the point of illegibility, and the visitor was asked to type in a match. Nowadays you might see a more modern version that looks like a simple checkbox. However, if Google…

Horror, Spiders, and Robots

Ready for a scary story, with robots and spiders? Not exactly science fiction, we'll call this one "web development reality" instead.

These programs check every page, click every link, gather as much data as possible - and report back to headquarters with the information.…

A Tale of Two Wheels

Let me begin this tale by expressing my love for riding bikes. I love the wind in my hair, being outside and finding neat spots to explore. When I was in high school, I would be out for hours just riding my bike around town even though I had a license and a car. An added bonus is I am getting exercise while I ride.

Looking forward to the Super Bowl (commercials)

For me, February 5th can’t come fast enough. Not because I’m a Patriot or a Falcon fan. Not because of the snacks (while they are a plus), and not because I simply love to watch football. I am looking forward to the Super Bowl because of the commercials. I’m always diligent about getting my snack plate ready and getting comfy on the couch so I don’t miss a single commercial.
