Greek seems to be in-fashion these days. First, last night, a friend called me to ask how to say man who touches elephants in Classical Greek. Then, to-day, as I was attempting to comment to a 'blog earlier to-day, I was presented with the following 'bot challenge: [detail of screen-capture in which a reCaptcha challenge presents a string containing the Hellenic psi] That's right, the string was unadresG ψ1,, and that's a psi, not a w nor a u with a slash through it. Entering a ψ worked just fine. (Not that I actually have my keyboard configured to deliver psi, but I keep Greek characters about, for copying-and-pasting.)
