Srikanth discovered yesterday that BB works perfectly on a PSP! He is busy having fun on his vacation, so I am posting on his behalf :)

Check out how the page gracefully degrades to fit the PSP screen..

BTW, if you have a mobile device, send in screen shots or device shots of bb to boiledbeans@gmail.com and we will post it on front page :)

This picture was one of the first recorded moments during the founding years of a very famous american organization. The organization itself got a 3 letter acronym for a name eventually, and a popular gag has it that the first two letters stand for the initials of the guy whose face is circled.

What organization and who’s the guy?

Reverse turing test

No, this isn’t another question…

Our experiment with the “math puzzle” as a captcha didn’t work out. Turns out that whatever script kiddie was spamming us has some basic math skills integrated into the scripts he runs. I normally contend that these nutjobs are mentally impaired (to the point of having trouble breathing without external guidance), but now I must grudgingly admit that this dexterity with numbers was not something I anticipated. Every dog has its day, I guess.

Anyway, the end result of this is that we now have a normal captcha up for unregistered users. Registered users can post without any issues.

Our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. It’s just that the spam was getting a bit much to handle for either of us, and it was only increasing.

Please do let us know immediately if you face any problems. You can post here, or if not possible, mail us at boiledbeans@gmail.com

Strictly speaking, the logo of this software should sport the animal shown in 1, because the software’s name is 1’s common name. But instead, it sports a stylized version of another animal whose name appears as a part of the software’s name.

Which software?

Hint: Map shows 1’s range
