I took a look at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tripcode http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shift_JIS and I see no problem with this. In fact, it looks like this kind of conversion may even be implemented as an external filter() in john.conf right now (relatively slow, but optional and easy to adjust) - or we may hard-code it in JtR (maybe exporting an option to toggle it if needed). What character encoding would you want to use on input to JtR, such as in wordlists? BTW, since DES-based crypt(3) uses 7-bit characters, some information from those Shift-JIS characters is lost (or at least that's my current understanding). It is quite possible to find the corresponding 7-bit-only strings instead. Alexander
