What is CAPTCHA Text ?

 Its a test for humans when signin the form or requesting some resources in internet. First captcha
text was developed and used in ALTAVISTA site. Its a way to filter out the automated programmes
which tries to misuse the resource.
You will notice the captcha image at the bottom of the comment form.  You need to type in what is displayed in the image in order for the comment to post.
 Its a program that can generate and grade tests that most humans can pass, but current computer
programs can’t pass.   It is like typing the text from jumbled image having text in it. Hope many of us know about the sliding image having text in it when we sign up the forms….exactly the same one. BUT with name
"CAPTCHA text"
Sample captcha text :
CAPTCHA in .NET ? – for ASP.NET [ online polling, form submission, validating the user etc]

50,000 IT kiosks for rural India from Microsoft !!

Microsoft India announced its new rural initiative to set up 50,000 IT kiosks for information and services related to health, education, communication and agriculture in villages.
The initiative, named ‘Saksham’ (self-reliant), would provide local entrepreneurs a chance to set up and manage kiosks on a self-sustaining basis for providing content and services to the rural populace.
Microsoft has tied up with three non-government agencies — Drishti, Jaikisan and n-Logue – to roll out these kiosks and is also in talks with lending institutions such as State Bank of India to provide funding to local entrepreneurs, Microsoft India Managing Director Neelam Dhawan said.
