I know it'd be evil, but there's a small part of me that *really* wants to build a captcha where users have to input a code using this rotary dial: victorribeiro.com/dial/

I bet it'd work pretty well at defeating both bots and people who don't understand how rotary phones worked!

@codesections
Id prefer it. It worst is captchas wear you are not sure how acuret you need to be, then you do like 30 of them till it eventualy tell you like your username or password was wrong

@codesections I think, there is potential to make it even better. At the moment, when the pointer leaves the dial, it just snaps back. Instead, it should select the number that was highlighted at that time with no way to delete single digits
