    Hello, I just registered for a forum account, however it took me a few tries.
    Apparently I don't know what shape CD's are, as I said "circle (usually)" as I've seen business card shaped ones before, but perhaps I needed to say hollow cylinder as circles would really be only be 2 dimensional.

    Next I was asked what color ocean water was. Apparently water, not counting foreign contaminants like oil or algee, isn't "clear". Who knew?

    Anyways, hello everyone, I finally made it in.
     
    Norton and streetfighter 2 say thanks.

    Yeah annoyed me to when changing password lol. I just thought i did a typo but maybe not lol. If ya see the question again try round hehe.

    @m1dg3t Maybe it should be light blue as it's only blue when there is a lot of water for example the sea.

    Welcome to TPU zyky!

    I registered on some place recently and I think I figured out the captcha after the 10th try or more!

    Anyway, it's much better like this than having a forum full of spammers trying to sell you sport shoes, watches, or linking to porn sites!

    On a different note, I once posted a genuine question asking for the exact dimensions of an AMD (ATI) HD5970 graphics card which I was trying to buy on release date.... because I was worried it might not fit in my case.

    And the answer I got... well it answered my size-question perfectly :laugh:

    Only stupid me was so bothered with the actual size of the card that I didn't even see the joke for a couple of days. And I actually took out a CD and measured its diameter and tried to use that to calculate the size of the card. :eek:

    I'm very bad at math, so I studied the image better.........
    Then it dawned on me :slap:

    :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Good there is already a thread about registering.
    I normally like questions or puzzles (except deciphering Captchas) but this botcheck made me SS it and post here.

    Yup! Quick tip: don't eat yellow snow! See above for dietary reasons. Not quite up to your daily nutritional values.

    There are still some chinese spammers getting through. I think W1zz needs to up the game a bit.

    Examples questions :
    1) What's another word for thesaurus?
    2) If you see an endangered animal eating an endangered plant, what should you do?
    3) After it rains and the sun comes out, why don't sheep shrink?
    4) If a turtle does not have a shell, is he homeless or naked?

    You get the idea. Goodbye spammers !!
