Okay, I encountered this one yesterday. I could read it just fine, I just didn't know how to type it:

Fine, so it's possible to type upside down, but how about sideways?

beware the Combining Cyrillic Millions character, it warps text.

on a separate thought, i ran into this gem quite awhile ago: http://ejohn.org/blo...-nets-in-javascript/
it breaks megaupload captchas using javascript, neural nets, and ocr in a greasemonkey script. the author has kept it fairly up-to-date, but i have no idea if it still works. the script is hosted here: http://userscripts.o...g/scripts/show/38736

Here's a nice one. I tried refreshing the image so many times I got temporarily locked out of trying anymore. The next day I was able to figure one out. (The board administrator is looking into getting a more readable captcha system.)

I just tried verification via audio, because I couldn't read the words MS asked me to enter on their web site. The instructions were: please type every word you hear. don't worry if you don't understand some words. just enter your best guess. Guess what: I did not understand a single word!

Attached is the respective audio file so you can give it a try ;)

What the hell.. that sound file is insane. Literally insane. Are they literally having 3-4 voices sound at the same time... 1 .. hair.. neural week 8... or something is the best I can come up with.  :tellme:

Daddydave- the funny thing about that is that after reading Renegade earlier link

http://www.apathyske...w-to-crack-captchas/

Sigh... I don't know why we bother...

it seems that class of Captcha are particularly easier to crack.

I saw this related link on Reddit the other day - How not to design a CAPTCHA. I guess Sony and Captchas don't quiet understand eachother.
