megaupload captcha

Someone make a Javascript-based captcha cracker for megaupload. It's strange to see those captchas again because I idly myself wrote a captcha-cracker for the same site. I don't think I ever announced it here because there wasn't any real application for it; I was just playing around.

According to the repo history it was two years ago, and the notes indicate how far I went before losing interest. As I recall their captcha image was quite weak, but you also needed to be able to interpret Javascript and fake out the DOM to skip a timed countdown.
