I don't mind these types of requests assuming the list doesn't become
flooded with them.  Personally as soon as I saw that email I started trying
to crack the hash.  There's something about a challenge that's hard for me
to resist.  Furthermore since the faster I crack the hash the more likely I
am to "win", I have been scouring google and the email archives for the last
20 minutes looking for anything that could be useful.  Which doesn't do much
good for anyone else, but it's definitely increasing my knowledge of JTR and
will hopefully allow me to contribute more to the list in the future.

As always thanks for the great software.
