Where do you want to go today?

All Microsoft operating systems!
I got confused by it too, but then I discovered that if you get an equal number of characters and you type in half of them, it works. That trick works for me. You have to keep trying until you get an equal number of characters. It's annoying, but eventually it works.

I haven't used RS in a few days, so excuse this if its incorrect. However, you have to squint to see the 4 characters that have the little sitting cat instead of the standing cat. I personally think it is a pain in the butt, but they need their security, with all of these darn pirates these days! :wink:

I really hate Rapidshare anyway, so this is just another reason to hate it. I can't stand all of the limits that regular users have. Just another reason to hate it.

I totally hate Rapidshare!
It's a real pain on the neck to send files to non members, well, sending is easy,
But all the !@@^&*#&# stuff they put as requisites for users to download.
To me, it's really bad.
I hate it.
:)
One more reason

I remember the first time I saw those. It was extremely annoying since it took me 3 times to get it right and there are those annoying download tickets that I had to wait for every time I got it wrong.

Rapidshare are getting worse and worse all the time.

Firstly, there were the annoying download tickets. Then the font used for the verification codes got more and more illegible. And now this.

It's no wonder I don't upload stuff to Rapidshare anymore.

Looks like Rapidshoote went from bad to worse, I had 6 go's at downloading one file over a half hour period.
Not once did I get it right, all I could make out, was one digit at a time, such as the number 4
in the last digit here.
What chance does anyone have now. 8-)
They've got to be joking, surely.

You have to admire the humor but I think it has gone too far really...

I used RS twice yesterday, but it was nowhere near as garbled as that.

The parody with the complex math problem doesn't seem so far-fetched anymore.

:P

Well they changed it again.

Now you just have to wait 60 seconds.

And even if you use Firefox, you can download Part 1 and then directly after that with IE Part 2...

Now only testing the cookies.

And rapidshare is holding more HAPPY HOUR downloads, no waiting, no security, but instand directly download.


EDIT:
Ok, just tested, you now can download 1 file at a time and no 100 minutes wait, but directly another download, only those 60 seconds.

Lol i bought a premium account not long ago as i use it for other things but it comes in handy. I do agree they need to go down as they consider themselves the god of upload sites.
