Subject: GridBob: Contribution to John (for Grid Computing)

Dear Devels,

I would like to send you my small contribution to John the Ripper. It is a set 
of scripts around John that allow a user, with a Grid Certificate, to run John 
on the Grid. I called it GridBob.

It works by dividing John's incremental password space into consecutive 
blocks, and sending a Grid job per each of those blocks. It comes with a filter 
called External:Block that does exactly that, and with all tools to keep track 
of all Grid jobs with CreamCE.

It depends on sqlite, and of course all Grid user tools, so it has to run in a 
Grid User Interface. It also allows you to work into different independent 
"sessions", with different password files and/or configuration.

I would also like to thank you all for your support during this process.

Kind regards,
Pablo Fernandez
