This mode is more like a huge dictionary attack and will eventually end, while incremental mode never stops. Moreover, if you run it for 2 hours, then want to run it for 4 more hours, it will have the exact same effect as if you ran it for 4 hours first! It is neither designed to find easy passwords fast, contrary to the incremental mode. If your password is like "za", it will still find "machin" before! -- To unsubscribe, e-mail john-users-unsubscribe@...ts.openwall.com and reply to the automated confirmation request that will be sent to you.
