So now reCAPTCHA selections slowly fade out and back in with new images, taking ~2 seconds per clicked image? Infuriating. How many seconds of human lives are wasted globally, daily, waiting for artificially-delayed reCAPTCHA images to fade in?

Not sure how I feel about Dream Theater's new album, "Distance Over Time", yet. I miss Portnoy-era Dream Theater.
