After reading several postings on this topic, these questions remain:

1. Discussed at [webmasterworld.com...] is “Another more-robust solution is to password-protect the content, and require a user login.” What about using one of those anti-spam images where people are served a random image and asked to type into a box the text on the image served? Would that do the same as password protection if the wav file could only be retrieved by correctly typing the image's text? If so, then would a password issuing process be necessary?

2. If I wish to hire someone (from elance, guru, or my usual and most excellent coder) to do the method discussed at [webmasterworld.com...] or at [webmasterworld.com...] or the cookie scripting method described at or the cookie scripting referred to at [webmasterworld.com...] are the competencies I would seek the following:

Apache Web Server

Have I mis-labeled any of the above, are any other competencies essential or are any of the above unnecessary?
