Like many others, I got stuck in front of Rapidshare’s captcha. After more than five attempts at reading different letters with kittens and other critters hidden behind them, I was thinking of giving up. Especially because each time I failed I had to wait a half a minute again. However, in one instance I went *back* via my browser, and tried solving the same captcha again. Turns out this works, and I got the file.
I know I could probably have solved it in a smarter fashion, but it wasn’t worth the effort.
When someone writes crappy software, their software is probably crappy in more than one way.
This is not the first time I’ve seen this happen.
