Am I a computer? Lets use a Turing Test to be sure.

Over at Code Project, Jeff Atwood, posted a rather neat article on a Captcha control.  A Captcha is a way to help prove you're a human attempting to do something rather than a computer.  There is are a few great articles on Human Interactive Proofs out there if you're interested in more reading.

Jeff talks about using HttpHandlers and HttpModules to do the image creation.  He also gives a .Net 1.1 and 2.0 framework version.  It includes a time out and even hides the actual text of the Captcha outside of the viewstate, since we all are aware the viewstate can easily be decoded.
