    I think they moved to deathbycaptcha.eu and their server is overloaded now.

    Just spoke to VIP-support.

    "Yes, we are, but we're working on fixing them. We should have this significantly improved within a few hours
    Thanks for your patience and understanding :) "

    So now you know.

    Hi,

    There was a technical problem on our end. It's been fixed after a hard and intensive day's work. Service was running smoothly since around 6:00 PM EST.

    We're very sorry for the problem this has caused you. And we thank you for the patience you have shown during this event.

    Happy Captcha Killing,

    Yeah, I was having issues with it earlier; seems fine now, although it's a little slow.

    Hi,

    Actually, both are working fine currently.

    However, we encourage to use the deathbycaptcha.eu domain because the .com domain will be closed eventually.

    Best Regards,

    The vast majority of the time actually = )

    Don't take my word for it, you can verify it for yourself by using the service now. If you don't have credits to do so, just PM me.

    I know man it was just a joke. I use to use around 100k captchas a month from you guys but I got tired of the system overload for about two hours everyday during my prime time of the day. However, I don't really have a need for any captcha service anymore so it's neither here nor there.

    However, I also understand that the only reason that the system overload would happen was because just about everyone uses your service because it is the most reliable one around.

    Hi,

    I'm sorry if I sounded upset, that was not my intention ; )

    Thanks for the explanation, thou. Please note that if you ever have the needs of a CAPTCHA service again, we've massively improved the overload times (the issues we faced recently were all due to technical/connectivity matters), to the point that we barely have image overflow anymore ; )

    Best Regards,
