Captcha.

Wow. It seems to be failing hard today. I've been trying to log in to Facebook and (though this is the only computer and the main connection I use) Facebook was telling me that I was using a new computer and had to go through all their security bull-shit to log on. Got so far as the captcha entry... which timed out. It would ask me to type the words and then go immediately to the submit button without showing me any words.

Livejournal? Logged in on the first try in under 5 seconds.

So, what the Hel happened to Facebook? Did it piss off 4Chan?

Odd. Facebook isn't giving my any trouble at all. When I first tried to go there today, it auto-logged in like normal.

Did something sideswipe Facebook's cookie on your system? Although failing to serve the captcha would require a second error, on their side.

Normal system maintenance probably got rid of the cookie. But that should effect the captcha (which still isn't working).

I was away so don't know, but I heard in the news that last week it was down for a couple of hours - missed that too. So... who knows?

Yeah, I heard that too. Didn't really notice that. Having it up but their security even more broken than usual is the annoying part.
