Recent changes for warranty info

I just discovered that if you go to to lookup the warranty status on a Mac, you are now presented with a captcha - a pretty nasty one at that. I suspect this may prevent those warranty scripts out there from fetching the info en masse.

@AVmcclint that is something that has been discussed fairly heavily over on the Slack channels (#jamfnation and #general). We've got a solution that provides an estimated warranty date based on the date of manufacture. It was created by Frogor (@frogor on Slack, @mikeymikey on Twitter) and updated to write to an EA.

I noticed that last week, must be fairly new.

I suspect a proper GSX connection may be the only way to go now?
