When you start cracking new password hashes, you have little knowledge about user preferences, may be you don't even know anything about password policy (required minimum password length, number of letters/digits/special character required, password change frequency, and so on.) So you have to base your strategy on experience about what worked best in previous cracking sessions. It would be good we could collect some information about how people usually approach this task, and what works best in their experience. As soon as passwords get cracked (or get not cracked as fast as you hoped), you'll have to think about how to adjust your strategy. For additional remarks, I'll use separate replies, to keep the mails shorter and hopefully more focused on specific topics. Frank
