over at akismet they use simple math problems. Simple multiple choice problems would also work. Keeping the data in plain text, so all the sensorilly deprived but still plain text capable people can handle it -- brilliant.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;

    [tye]: oh, LanX, but I was thinking that it was not a function that Perl provided.
    [Corion]: Yeah, I also went a more roundabout way, just to find that the solution had been with Perl all along! ;)
    [tye]: perhaps the "less secure" comment was motivated by old versions of getlogin() and trolled through the 'last' log trying to match your TTY. On modern Unix, I believe getlogin() just returns a fundamental bit of identity from your process.
    [tye]: (Because every thing you do has that tag available for auditd.)
    [tye]: Though it is certainly true that you should not use getlogin() for auth().
    [LanX]: tye: just a tip for the next time, I found interesting things there...
    [LanX]: like shmem commands : shmctl, shmget, shmread, shmwrite...
