I've found this to be true for some users. They'll have a fast GPU card and they'll see it do hundreds of millions of plain MD5 hashes a second using some other password cracking software, then they'll get some OpenBSD Blowfish hashes and run them through JtR and wonder why JtR is so slow in comparison. It's just a basic lack of understanding. Perhaps a wiki page would be appropriate to help user expectations be inline with reality? If that's an acceptable idea, I'd be glad to write a rough first draft provided one does not already exist. Brad
