What is CAPTCHA? I don't ever remember hearing or seeing that anywhere.

Captcha is that third party verification where sometimes if you want to sign into something on the computer and you have to type some phrase they have written in say cursive. It’s to help prevent automated systems from just signing onto a website over and over since the “robot” can’t read cursive.

Other times it might be a several small pictures and you have to click on the picture of a bus for example.

It’s a step to prove you are human. You said you don’t ever sign out or turn off your computer so you wouldn’t have this for the rugerforum.

I have turned my PC and my Android off numerous times over many years and have never seen what you speak of. I clear this Android history daily. I need to 'log in' daily. Never have seen any pictures of anything.

I think you haven't seen the CAPTCHA message because you haven't mis-typed your password several times in a row. For me, I now realize, I wasn't adding a capital letter in my password. So I mis-typed it either 4 or 5 times in a row and then I get this message:

I took a screenshot on my phone of the message:

Is that why its impossible to get on so often? Too many oldtimers squatting on the line?

Yep, that's it. City codes, maximum occupancy, Fire Marshals etc. Oh, and don't forget the cover charge. No handstamping, either. Once you leave the premises you can't get back in...
