Please try to make fewer postings - like, don't post until the end of
your "work day" such that you don't "flood" others with your "progress
reports" and general whining, which most members of this list are not
interested in anyway.

Please always try to make your postings and/or likely replies to them
useful to at least some other members of this list.

The patch at:

is for version 1.6.38, which you can download from:

However, on the web page above, there's also the "current
tree" link, pointing to Simon's "myjohn.tgz" tarball.  This is an entire
source tree for JtR with Simon's additions, so if you use it, you do not
need to download anything else JtR-specific.

There's nothing to prevent you from downgrading to a version of JtR that
matches the patches that you'd like to use.  Also, you can use different
versions of JtR for different tasks (e.g., with different hash types).
