I recall that someone on this list (Alain Espinosa?) did.

As I'm sure you understand, the above is not sufficiently informative.
(Please think twice before you post.)

You need to mention these things:

- hash type;

- whether it was a synthetic benchmark (e.g., "./john --test") or a real
world run - separately for each program;

- number of loaded hashes and different salts (if applicable);

- duration of the runs, cracking mode, whether any passwords got cracked
(if applicable);

- JtR version (and any patches) and PasswordPro version;

- CPU type, clock rate, and OS;

- if multi-core or multi-CPU, whether multiple threads or instances were
run (I don't know if PasswordPro includes built-in support for that, but
it might - so be sure to check your CPU usage).
