Subject: Re: Write: file too large error

Thanks Frank. A good reason to not send out a stupid question, late at
night when frustrated.  I was focusing on it being a JtR error.  I will
have to look, its on a Kali machine, but I bet its formatted as fat.

And I was experimenting with the CMIYC lists just doing rockyou single
attacks and then loop backs accross files 1-4

Thanks again
