Updated SMF & added better CAPTCHA.

Had some issues with spam on the forum recently, apparently the registration CAPTCHA we had was broken with a purpose-built script. To fight this, while updating the SMF today I also replaced our old registration verification setup with Google's reCAPTCHA which is much more secure. Shouldn't be an issue moving forward.

Very nearly, just posted a thread about it actually. :)

Construction-wise, it's pretty much done. There's just some red tape nonsense we need to go through to get the power and water back on (since the building was previously damaged by a storm) and I need to have the cable company come connect to the building for Internet access. Unless something else goes terribly wrong things should be wrapped up by Halloween.
