Subject: Re: Making an incremental charset

Thank you for your help.  The policy came from a password set for a  
Network Security course.  My professor assured us the policy was  
enforced.  I had broken most of the passwords using wordlist mangling,  
but I was unable to break the last few, and wanted to try an  
incremental break.

Thanks again, I will look into your suggestions.
