 * Static Captcha Example Script
 * 2012-04-18
 * @version 3.2RC2 (April 2012)
 * The static captcha exposes an easy to use interface that applications can
 * use to generate captcha challenges and validate them by a unique ID.  A
 * captcha image can be associated with an ID and no PHP sessions are required.
 * The captcha ID can be stored in a SQLite database by Securimage.
 * Tip: To give the user a refresh captcha button, use Ajax to request a new ID,
 * update the hidden form input with the new captcha ID, and update the image source
 * to securimage_show.php providing the captcha ID.
